Teacher Profile

  • Justin Mikkola


    M.Ed.-Mathematics Education

    Each day in class we will practice building a growth mindset, an appreciation of math and learning, and develop curious persistence towards fun and challenging problems. We will all aim to help each other actively engage, wrestle, and play with the math (and then consolidate/review it) to understand how and why it works. This research is the foundation for how the classroom will function.

    Mikkola and Dog

    Having grown up in Missoula, I continue to appreciate living and learning with the people here, particularly those at Sentinel. Exploring the mountains and rivers around us is an opportunity my dog and I (and family and friends) like to take as often as possible.

    If you have any questions about the class or ideas on how we can help make it a better learning experience, send me an email and we will work something out from there.
