Hello everyone, and welcome to Mr. Moe's Math classes.
I am a lifelong learner who is passionate about helping others to become better teachers, and better learners. My goal as a teacher is to pass along the knowledge, methods, and enthusiasm that have been bestowed upon me by others. I began my career in education as a Special Education Pareducator, which allowed me to learn and implement a broad range of interventions and teaching methodoligies. I carried that experience with me as I became a licensed teacher. My experiences with professional development and classroom instruction have allowed me to continually improve so that I can have a positive impact on how students are educated.
My family and I are originally from Oregon, where we learned to enjoy the outdoors and to appreciate how everything is connected. All of us are dependent on the caring and kindness of others. I try to make sure that I am caring for every student in order to help them all be able to achieve their goals, and become capable adults who will positively impact their community.
My teaching career began in western Kansas, where I was fortunate enough to live in a community of immigrants. The majority of the families that I served were Hispanic, and came to the U.S. in order to build better lives for their children. I also served a number of families from African nations and Southeast Asia who also came to the U.S. to build better and safer lives. I consider myself fortunate to have been able to learn about so many different cultures, and look forward to learning about your families, and more about the history of Cincinnati.
