My name is Olivia Alise Knight. I possess a Bachelor’s of Science in Mathematics from Jackson State University and a Masters’ in Secondary Education. At this time, I am teaching Algebra 1 at Forest Hill High School in Jackson, MS.
My experiences as a Mathematics teacher, tutor, and student teacher have afforded me the opportunity to interact with diverse student populations and engage them in learning. Using teaching methods that coincide with Bloom’s Taxonomy, including providing high-interest learning material, multiple means of assessment and instruction, as well as the careful modeling and scaffolding of new skills, I strive to ensure that every student achieves excellence.
In addition to believing that every student deserves and is capable of achieving success, I am passionate about preparing students for the globalized world that they will undoubtedly face as they grow to be adults. My lessons utilize any and all technology that is available, giving my students an education in common technological uses including professional writing and presentations, internet research, web design, and proper communication.
Through my previous experience in retail sales and management, I understand the importance of motivation and possess excellent listening and time management skills. In training my men’s department staff, I created a cohesive team of people from very different backgrounds, modifying my training style to suit the needs of each individual. I participated as a tutor through a program at my company, volunteering each week as a teacher’s assistant in a local public school. It was this experience that inspired me to re-evaluate my career and return to school to become a teacher.
