Fremont High School
“In high school, I struggled with mathematics because there was an emphasis on rote learning and memorization. When I got to college, I realized that mathematics was a rich field of study. There are so many connections and so many different ways to represent a situation using mathematics. I decided to become a math teacher because I wanted to help high school students experience all that mathematics has to offer.”
Before transitioning to the field of education, Rick worked at Starbucks for seven years. He began teaching at Fremont High School in 2013. In addition to teaching, he serves as the coordinator of the English Language Learner program at his school.
Rick enjoys camping, reading, gardening, and traveling in Guatemala.
