Grade(s): Middle School
I am a middle Math school teacher. I teach Algebra, General Mathematics, and Honors courses. I find that the student willing to learn to be the most successful, but the student unwilling to learn to be the reason I started teaching. I want to help all students understand the power that math knowledge can provide to those that truly understand its potential. The career opportunities available to those comfortable with the subject of Math are innumerable.
Let the power of Math help you understand how the world works.
I make a guarantee to ALL my students that they will not FAIL any of my courses, if they make the following FOUR promises:
1) I will listen.
2) I will always try.
3) I will never give up.
4) I will always ask questions to gain understanding.
I'm the Founder and co-creator of Sophia and I love to create new things. I have a deep passion for education and technology, and I spend a lot of time thinking about how they could come together more effectively. I earned my bachelor's degree in U.S. History from the University of Wisconsin and my MBA from the University of Minnesota. I'm also the proud father of three daughters who give me a lot of great feedback on how to improve Sophia. I hope you'll send me your thoughts and ideas about Sophia. You can also feel free to share your thoughts on education, technology, American history (my personal passions are presidential and immigration history), music, songwriting, or baseball. I’d love to hear from you. - Don
I am just an average Midwestern guy spreading some knowledge about the human body. I received my B.A. from the University of Wisconsin Superior and my M.A. from the College of St Scholastica. Right now. The classes I teach are: anatomy & physiology, pathophysiology, medical terminology, medical law & ethics, kinesiology. I started making these videos as supplements to the classroom a few months ago and have many more to make. In my spare time I play table tennis for the St Adalberts Table Tennis Club (SATTC) and also for the Duluth Table Tennis Club (DTTC). I also like to run, bike, swim, cook and read Stephen King novels when I get a chance.
I am a high school mathematics teacher in Southern California who absolutely loves to make math meaningful and memorable to my students. I currently teach Algebra 1 to 9th and 10th graders, and Math Analysis Honors to 11th and 12th graders. I teach using a "Flipped Classroom" model, where my students receive instruction at home via video and then come to class ready to discuss, think and work together, and solve problems. Outside of teaching, I enjoy relaxing with my husband, reading fiction, going on walks, and watching our favorite shows on Hulu.
Hello my name is Beth Sweeney and this is my 6th year teaching 7th grade math at Brewer Middle School. I graduated from the University of Texas in Austin December of 2006 with a BBA in Marketing and a Minor in Advertising. TEXAS FIGHT!!! Upon graduation I decided that it was best for me to pursue my passion and follow my heart. This led me to teaching children. I received my alternate certification through ECAP and am certified to teacher Math, Science, Social Studies, and English in grades 4 -8. In August of 2011, I graduated with my Masters in Guidance & Counseling from Angelo State University. I have a wonderful husband named David. And a 6 year old step-daughter named Ava and a 1 year old named Piper. I also have a two year old silver lab named Gunner. I am so fortunate to also be the student council sponsor. This is such a wonderful group of students on campus. It is very rewarding to see the leaders of our campus grow and mature into our future leaders. Every member completes AT LEAST 12 hours of community or school service every six weeks. Our motto is "Leading by Serving" because I feel as though it is so important to teach kids at an early age the importance of giving back to others. Although the rewards are not always visual... the most meaningful ones are felt in the heart! I am really looking forward to getting to know all of my students. I love teaching math and do my best to make it FUN!! I know we are going to have a great year!!
My name is Poonam Roy from India. I’ve been around the web development industry long enough to have actually used a NeXT computer. Since I know that in order to succeed specialization is key. That’s why I’ve stayed where I’m good at. And today I still keep my job at an offshore CodeIgniter development company India.
I'm a lifelong learner and a grade 6 teacher in Burford, ON, Canada. Two years ago I discovered Twitter and with that the way I present education was totally revolutionized. Now the entire world is our classroom as we Twitter, Skype and Blog our way through the year. I've embraced the Flipped Classroom approach because it leads to an Inquiry and Project-Based Program that best suits our learners. My Christian faith is at the core of my being and my wife and 3 teen-aged boys highlight my home life. In May I started running and on October 14, 2012 I excitedly competed in my first marathon.
