Salutations Students and Parents,
Welcome to the 2018-2019 school year here at EMS !
My name is Michael "Mike" Korber.
I will be guiding 7th Grade and Honors 7th Grade (aka 8th Grade) Mathematics this year.
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 rambunctious children and two equaly rambunctious 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. I will be happy to respond to your inquiries at my earliest opportunity.
