Mathematics minor from Bowdoin College
Growing with dyslexia and ADHD, Jeff understands that everyone learns differently. Armed with an IB diploma he moved to Maine to attend Bowdoin College. While there, Jeff worked as a teaching assistant and quantitative skills tutor. This ignited a passion for education. After graduating with honors, he pursued work as a high school teacher and summer wilderness trip leader. Over the last five years, Jeff has taught AP calculus, Precalculus, Algebra II, geology, and outdoor education at schools in Switzerland and New Hampshire. As a math teacher and department head at the White Mountain School, Jeff worked to find innovative ways to increase classroom time for individual instruction and feedback. This work eventually led him to the University of Colorado where he is pursuing a PhD in Curriculum and Instruction for math and science education. Jeff is a passionate educator who loves working with students to help them learn on their terms. In his free time he likes bake bread and spend as much time as he can on skis or a bike.
