As a teacher, I—or Mr. “G,” as my students call me—work to make my classes exciting, energetic, and fun. To me, math is an amazing subject, challenging at times, but one that can be immensely gratifying and certainly one that has so much to offer. I just hope that my passion and excitement for the subject rubs off on my students. I want my students to appreciate how often math is used in their daily lives. It gives me great pleasure to see a student’s excitement when he or she finally arrives at the correct solution to a difficult problem. It’s a very special relationship to have with students, and one that I hope to continue to have with all my students in the years to come.
