Chris Dunn - Math Teacher - John R. Rogers High School

I have been teaching for 6 years. I spent the first two years of my career at Riverside High School and Riverside Middle School and have since been at Rogers High School. During that time, I have taught Algebra 1, Geometry, Algebra 2, and Intermediate Math. The majority of my work has been with Algebra 1 students; which is also the group that I currently teach. I have been involved in multiple projects including a mathematics project targeted at improving the level of rigor in Algebra 1 classrooms, a literacy project aimed at improving students annotation and synthesis abilities, and another transitions project geared toward supporting students socially and emotionally in their transition year between high school and postsecondary.

Thomas McNeiece - Math Teacher - John. R. Rogers High School

I have been teaching for 9 years, 8 of which were at Lewis and Clark High School in Spokane. I have taught numerous courses, but have been teaching AP BC-calculus and Algebra 2 most recently. Through my years of teaching I have become National Board certified in Adolescent and Young Adult Mathematics and I have participated the Riverpoint Advanced Mathematics Project.

Joshua Krone - Mathematics Professor - Spokane Community College

My first teaching job was as an emergency substitute for Castle Rock High School during the ’06-’07 academic year. I continued teaching as a graduate student and later as an adjunct at the University of Montana in Missoula. After a 3 year stint working for a pharmaceutical company, I moved to Spokane in 2012 to teach at SCC, where I am currently on the tenure track. My interests include improving mathematics literacy, helping students transition from high school to post-secondary education, highlighting the use of mathematics in industry, and instilling a love of learning. I am also interested in learning more about growth mind set as applied to mathematics.
