Ms. Beth Ogren
Hello! I am a math teacher here at Washington Technology Magnet. My classroom is part of The Bulldogs House 31! I teach 8th grade Accelerated Algebra and Algebra 1. During 5/10 I teach a mentoring class which pairs upper classmen with 8th grade students.
I grew up in Indianapolis, IN and went to Purdue where I earned a BS in management with minors in computer science, accounting, and psychology. After working as a systems analyst, I spent time raising 3 boys and teaching piano and chess. At that point, I decided to become a math teacher. I received my Masters in Education from St. Catherine's. As you may guess, I believe that life is a journey. It's always best to be prepared for anything:)
My husband and I have 3 mostly grown up sons who enrich our lives in so many ways. We also have 2 dogs, a tortoise and 2 snakes. I have a garden that keeps me sane. I enjoy cycling, weight-lifting, and walking with friends and/or dogs. When not sweating, I read, play the piano, and do the daily sudoku.
Communication is very important to me. If you have any questions or concerns this year, please feel free to contact me. The best way to communicate with me is via email.
