Martha Candler

Lesson Designer

Martha Candler is a mathematics teacher with five years of high school experience and 20 years of teaching math at the college level, most often as an adjunct instructor so that she could be home when her children were home. With most of her experience in College Algebra, Trigonometry, Pre-Calculus, and Business Calculus, her favorite has always been Trigonometry.

She believes that students should understand what they do and not just do the work mechanically or through shortcuts. As much as possible, they should see a reason or use for what they are learning. This is her philosophy when creating extra materials for her classes.

Martha has two married daughters who went through public schools, but that might not be the case if they were school age now, she says. She enjoys reading, needlework, and is very involved in the music program at her church, where she plays piano, keyboard, harp (occasionally), and works with a men’s vocal quintet and a mixed ensemble.

You can see some of her created materials on teacherspayteachers.com.
