Teacher Feature – Beth Menzie
School: Amsterdam High School
Location: Amsterdam, NY; USA
In her own words: “I am a math teacher, both at the high school and at the community college level. But of all the courses I teach, Geometry is my passion. Unlike most passions, however, mine just seems to grow stronger as I get to know to know Geometry better! I am also currently enrolled in a Leadership in Mathematics Education program at Bank Street College of Education, where I am a student immersed in the joys of learning mathematics through discovery; in my own classroom I am now working hard to incorporate this approach, hoping to ignite the passions of my students as well!.”
