I was born and raised in southern Minnesota, a small town called Lake Crystal. I moved to the metro area in 2003 with my wife, Susan. We now live in Savage with our 3 children, Greydon, Evelyn, and Livia. In my spare time, I enjoy playing with my kids, watching movies, and reading.
Students will be working toward mastery in the math standards, Numbers and Operation, Algebra, Geometry, and Data and Statistics. 80% of students' grades come from unit assessments and 20% comes from daily work - math review participation and quizzes, in class work and daily assignments, and problem solving. Our daily agenda is Math Review (a 10-15 minute review of critical math skills), new information, check-in, quiz or exit slip. Each Friday, students will be engaged in problem solving activites or taking a math review quiz.
