Thank you for allowing me to introduce myself as Ashley Carranza, Middle School Mathematics teacher at Erin Elementary School. The 2019-2020 school year will mark the beginning of my 14th year teaching mathematics and my 9th year at Erin Elementary. After receiving a Bachelor’s degree in Elementary Education and a minor in Mathematics from the University of Wisconsin – Whitewater I began my teaching career with grades 6-8 mathematics in a small town near Lake Geneva, Wisconsin. A move back to the area where I was raised has brought me the opportunity to work with the Erin students, staff and community. In 2019, I completed my Master’s Degree in Teaching and Learning from University of Wisconsin – Oshkosh with a focus on Math Intervention. I am glad to be “home” and to spend time with my husband as we enjoy raising our two children.
I firmly believe in an integrated approach to mathematics, where student discovery and project-based learning are emphasized. I fuse my teaching style with student-centered instruction, using their words and their ideas! I feel confident that I am preparing my learners for the rigor of college and work expectations as set forth by the Wisconsin Standards of Mathematics. I enjoy offering a math class that has real applications, excitement for discoveries and the opportunity to experience and be vulnerable to learning as a process!
