Mr. Dirk Myers
My name is Dirk Myers and I would like to welcome you to my classroom. This is my 7th year teaching at Sawtooth Middle School and my 16th year in education. This year marks a transition to 6th grade science and 2 math labs. Prior to this I was one of our 6th grade math teachers. As a team, I want us to maximize your child's potential. With commitment and hard work every child will be successful.
I believe that teaching is a relationship business. Your child needs to know that their teacher is interested in them as an individual. This approach encourages children to push themselves without fear of failure. Mistakes are a part of life and should be treated as a learning opportunity. My teaching style mirrors my coaching style: high expectations, corrective feedback, encouragement, self reflection, and accountability. I have found that my voice and excitement for the subject can intimidate some of my students to start but after a few weeks, they generally realize that I want what is best for them and I am here to help.
