DORA DASSUNCAO

Dear families, welcome!

My name is Ms. d'Assuncao, and you can call me Ms. D.

I am from Rio de Janeiro, Brazil.  I graduated from Universidade Estadual do Rio de Janeiro in Brazil in 1980. I have a Bachelor’s degree in Mathematics.   I’ve been living in California for over 30 years.  I have one son who graduated from Cal. Baptist University.

I think my style of pedagogy is a combination of enthusiasm for mathematics, common sense, and ongoing curiosity about how to get the information to students in a way that they will understand it and perhaps even find some enthusiasm for math. I try to be very very clear about what our procedures are and what is expected of them.  Last, I am always searching for ways to make mathematics more accessible, by exploring manipulatives, drawing, writing, technology, and cooperative strategies. I would love to think that my students consider me a tough but fair and caring teacher.
