Teacher, Charlotte-Mecklenburg Schools | Art interest – Fine Art Portraiture & Creative Photography
Michelle Krummel has 18 years teaching experience and has taught Advanced Placement and International Baccalaureate mathematics courses for the past 12 years. She currently teaches at Myers Park High School in Charlotte, N.C. Prior to moving to North Carolina, she taught in Howard County and Anne Arundel County Public Schools in Maryland.
Michelle earned a master’s degree in Gifted Education at Johns Hopkins University, Baltimore, MD, and a master’s degree in Mathematics Education at Towson University, Towson, MD. She earned a bachelor’s degree in Mathematics at George Mason University, Fairfax, VA. She is certified to teach grades 6-12. In 2018, she achieved National Board Certification in Early Adolescence/Mathematics.
Her special areas of interest include instructional technology, math/art integration, and gifted education. She believes that integrating art and mathematics enables students to discover new ways in which mathematics models real-world phenomena, and allows students to engage in positive effective learning experiences in the mathematics classroom. Both fields lend themselves easily to discovery and self-exploration, and she has presented work in this area at local and state conferences.
Aside from teaching, Michelle enjoys photography, particularly fine art portrait photography and photo manipulation. She loves finding ways to connect math, art, and photography. She also enjoys sci-fi, creative writing, art history, and her dog, Barclay.
Michelle joined NCAA in February 2016. Her Flour Dance Series (photography) was accepted into the 11th Juried Member Art Exhibit in 2016. In 2017, she won Best in Photography at the 12th Juried Member Art Exhibit for her work “I Left in Want to Find Myself”.
She lives in North Carolina with her family.
