Degrees and Certifications:
My name is Orie Dudley, and I am teaching 6th and 7th Grade Mathematics this year. This year is certainly going to bring new challenges, but I am looking forward to getting to know your student!
I have taken a somewhat indirect path to the classroom. I have a B.A. in English Literature from Hamilton College (in upstate New York), I have been a licensed architect, a real estate agent and a substitute teacher in the Boise School District. This will be my sixth year at Pathways.
Math can be a very difficult subject. I do set very high expectations and push my students to achieve more than they thought they could, and I will do everything I can to help them meet and exceed those expectations. There are three things necessary to succeed in my classroom: You have to work hard; you have to ask questions, and you can't be afraid to be wrong. Oh, and Go Red Sox!
My favorite thing to hear from my students is “Wait a second, that’s it? But this is easy!”
Please feel free to reach out to me with any questions, comments or concerns you may have. Email is the fastest way to reach me (firstname.lastname@example.org), but you can always call me as well.
