This is my first year at Hellgate High School and I'm very excited to be here! I'm teaching Geometry, Financial Algebra, and Concepts & Skills 2. This is my seventh year teaching overall and in that time, I've taught just about every course from 8th grade pre-algebra to 200 level college courses. I got my BS in mechanical engineering from the University of Wisconsin (Go Badgers!) and also have eight years of work experience in mechanical engineering. I've done graduate school and teacher training here at the University of Montana (Go Griz!) and Concordia University Wisconsin.
With my experience working as a corporate engineer and running my own business, I emphasize applications of mathematics and mathematical modeling skills necessary to be successful outside of school.
Outside of work, I like spending time outside with my wife and two boys. Mountain biking, skiing, camping, and fishing are our favorites.
If you need math help, stop by during lunch (with the exception of Thursdays) or after school. I believe anyone can do math if they work at it enough.
