Degrees and Certifications:
My name is Melba Corbell, and I am glad to be at SBMS! I will be your student's Math teacher for their 8th grade year. I graduated from the University of North Carolina Wilmington in 2004 with a degree in Elementary Education. I am certified to teach k-6, ESL, middle school math, middle school science, and high school science. I have taught 3rd grade, 4th grade, 5th grade, 7th grade art, 8th grade science, and 8th grade math.
My philosophy of teaching is that all students should be given tools and opportunities to succeed and grow mathematically. My goal for this year is to create a safe environment where all students can make growth and learn to become independent learners. Through my teaching experiences I am aware that children learn in a variety of different ways and I hope to incorporate all those different learning styles in my classroom. I plan to make math practical, exciting and relevant to the student's lives.
