I teach Math 7, Biliteracy Math 7, and Math Intervention 7 at Wy'East Middle School. I will also be teaching Science 7 in combination with Math 7 as a redesigned STEM 7 (Science, Technology, Engineering, and Mathematics) during CDL (Comprehensive Distance Learning) in my second year here at Wy'East. In my five years teaching prior to coming to Wy'East, I taught 8th grade math, Algebra I, and 4th grade (all subjects). I love Wy'East and I'm very happy to be here!
I grew up in Hood River and graduated from HRVHS as co-validictorian in 2006. Then in 2010, I earned by Bachelor of Science from University of Oregon with a dual major in Economics (focus in Banking and Finance as well as Environmental Economics) and Sociology. Next I graduated from Concordia University - Portland in 2012 with a Master of Art in Teaching.
This last summer I married my beautiful wife, Mercedes Chance, who is teaching 2nd grade for Hood River Options Academy. We both love dogs, the outdoors (rivers, lakes, woods, trails, camping...), sports (basketball, golf...), and teaching. We are both very happy to make learning a positive experience for our students here in HRCSD!
