Welcome to Grade 8 @ Boyne!

Posted August 10, 2017 By mark

Greetings! I am psyched to be teaching Grade 8 Math at Boyne this year!

This will be my 13th (lucky!) year teaching. I have taught every grade from Kindergarten to Grade 8 in some capacity in my career already. Math is my favourite subject to teach and I was a Math Coach for 3 years, so I have a lot of practice!

In my classes you can expect a lot of the following

  • problem solving
  • working in pairs, groups
  • a focus on WHY instead of how
  • technology (3d printing, programming, etc)

I am a firm believer in quality over quantity. We will learn to solve problems and gain skills and knowledge together. I am excited! I am hoping to have some google hangout sessions with people working in the STEM fields (science, tech, engineering, math) talking about how math helps them in their careers.

Outside of school, I have two kiddos and I like video games, reading and hiking.

This website will be used infrequently, but will link to our google classrooms and other sites we will frequent.

See you soon!
