Why Mathematics

“The challenge and also the joy in finding ways to describe natural processes is just too much fun.”

Professional Experience

As a graduate student, Michael taught trigonometry, calculus and math to elementary teachers. In the fall of 2015, he began teaching calculus and pre-calculus at STEM High School.


Michael enjoys rock climbing, basketball, running, reading and spending time with his three daughters.

Academic Background

  • University of Wyoming (Doctor of Philosophy in Mathematics)
  • University of Wyoming (Bachelor of Arts in Mathematics and Secondary Education)


I think a teacher’s role is to provide a pathway for students to successful citizens, if they choose to follow. A teacher also should have a role and voice in shaping what it means to be a successful citizen.
