Hail Students and Parents,
Welcome to the 2019-2020 school year here at EMS !
I will be guiding 7th Grade and Honors 7th Grade Mathematics this year on TEAM ODYSSEY. This will be my 6th year at Eagle Middle School.
I am a graduate of both Boise State University and Idaho State University but most of all I am a student of life with a diverse portfolio of worldly experiences.
I was born in Czechoslovakia (Czech Republic) many moons ago. My family emigrated to the United States in 1984 in order to escape persecution. After graduating from Idaho Falls High School, Class of '94, I attended the two above mentioned universities, acquired many certifications in various fields of endeavor, and have proudly served and retired as a veteran after 20 years of military service. I now reside in Meridian with a wonderful spouse (also an educator), two teenagers and two equaly adacious dogs.
It is my hope that I can dispel some of the anxiety of mathematics and the middle school experience as a whole, and inspire all my students to share in my love of learning.
If you have any questions, comments or concerns, the best way to contact me is via my school e-mail or by leaving a voice mail via the school phone system. If you would like me to call you, please let me know in your correspondence or voice mail a couple different times that would be opportune for you top have a conversation. I will be happy to respond to your inquiries at my earliest opportunity.
