It is my honor and pleasure to be a part of the virtual world as I have spent 9 years prior teaching at brick and mortar schools. I have enjoyed my time there and learned many skills and ways to teach students math at a high level.
A little about me: I was born and raised in Brazil, until I was about high school age. At that time I moved to the United States and attended Remington High School, in Whitewater, KS. I went to Tabor College in Hillsboro, KS, and got my Math Major, and Education Degree there. I spent a total of 10 years teaching junior high math. I am married to my wife Sarah, and have three children. Since my wife is from Guthrie, we moved to Oklahoma.
Growing up with a lot of adversity and many tragedies around my upbringing, I always had a teacher that I could count on and that would give me sound advice. Those teachers inspired me to become a teacher. My goal has always been to be able to teach at the highest level possible, but also to be able to give sound advice, and to point students to people that will also be able to help them.
I see teaching in the virtual setting the next step/challenge in my teaching career. This is my second year at virtual teaching, I have already seen quite a bit of the difference between this setting compared to brick and mortar. My hope, goal and my reason to teach at E-School is to bring the quality of teaching and learning that you would expect from the brick and mortar into the virtual environment, and to year over year work and improve in creating ways, to engage students in meaningful and thoughtful ways.
I look forward to working with students for years to come, and help them grow in their problem solving and logical thinking skills as both of these skills truly are what Mathematics is all about. GO EAGLES!!!
