My name is Dirk Myers and I would like to welcome you to my classroom. This is my 5th year teaching 6th grade math at Sawtooth Middle School and I love what I do. 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.
I believe that all students can learn and I promise to give the needed effort to help accomplish this goal. I pride myself on helping children maximize their academic potential. I have high expectations academically and behaviorally and I will continually push your child to maximize their potential.
Please feel free to contact me early and often if you have concerns.
