Pamela Thomas

Portmore, Saint Catherine Parish, Jamaica


I have over 30 years experience teaching mathematics at both the secondary and the tertiary levels in Jamaica, and at the secondary level in the United States. I currently teach prospective teachers, both primary and secondary levels, how to effectively develop a concept, thereby, teaching for conceptual understanding. I have used various models and manipulatives in my classroom to model what students need to do in their own classroom.
