    M.Ed.-Mathematics Education

    Each day in class we will practice building a growth mindset, an appreciation of learning and life, 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/clarify) to understand it. This research, along with that emphasis on a growth mindset, appreciation, and persistence, is the foundation for how the classroom will function.

    Mikkola and Dog

    Having grown up in Missoula, I'm thankful to continue 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 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.
