Hi! I’m Melissa at Marvel Math.
I truly love, love, love mathematics! My goal is to support teachers by creating engaging, standards-aligned, rigorous math resources that are ready to use. I have a Master’s Degree in Mathematics Education and 15 years of k-10 teaching experience. I have taken students through the entire spectrum of mathematics from kindergarten through Algebra and I have a deep understanding of how layers of content are built year-by-year. I create each resource to ensure student success in your classroom and for the years to come. I currently work as a k-5 Math Staff Developer for the 4th largest school district in Texas and have had the opportunity to write problem solving and guided math curriculum used by k-5 teachers in our district. I have traveled throughout California and Texas presenting workshops and series to teachers on a range of math topics. I even had the opportunity to write professional development curriculum for the state of California.
I started creating lessons and supplemental materials, because I saw a great need. I found lots of cute resources, but not many that were aligned to the standards and at an appropriate level of rigor. I found rigorous and aligned content, but it lacked visual appeal and didn’t motivate my students to engage in mathematics. That is what drove me to launch Marvel Math, a place where you can find well-designed lessons and ideas that are fun, engaging & appealing. A place where cute meets quality.
