Hail Students and Parents,
Welcome to the 2020-2021 school year here at EMS !
I will be guiding Math 7 and Honors Math 7 this year on TEAM ODYSSEY. This will be my 7th 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 U.S. in 1984 in order to escape political persecution. I learned to speak English. After graduating from Idaho Falls High School, Class of '94, I attended ISU, BSU, acquired professional certifications in various fields of endeavour, and proudly served and retired as a veteran after 20 years of military service. I currently reside in Meridian with a wonderful spouse (also an educator), two audacious teenagers, two equaly audacious dogs (Rocket and Darwin), a hamster named Bread, and a hedgehog named Goose. I'm an avid PC gamer (Yes, I play Minecraft.). I'm into space stuff and geek out on all things science. I also love the peace and quiet of the untamed wilderness and enjoy good philosophical discourse with other enlightened people.
It is my hope that I can help to 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 good time to call you. I will be happy to respond to your inquiries at my earliest opportunity.
