YouTube channel

I now have a YouTube channel!  I am posting the lessons from class to the channel.  There likely won't be anything really innovative since I am simply recording the audio and desktop, but it is a start.  I am working on an overall tech plan for our school as a part of my Master's Degree, so expect more in the near future.

In the past, I have written the lesson on a Smart Board and emailed the notes, if there were any, to the students as a PDF.  This will open it up for them greatly, and so far the reviews from them are good.

Back Online

After nearly a two year hiatus, I am back!  I dropped the blog because I was working in the oil and gas fields in Colorado and North Dakota and got very busy in mudlogging, geosteering, and running my business.  I decided to drop it and go back into teaching in August 2012, and now one year later I am reimplementing some of the tools that I used as a teacher in previous years. 

I am currently teaching Math 4 (Algebra 2/Geometry/ Probability and Statistics), AP Calculus AB, and I have recently taken over the Industrial Arts program at Grand Valley High School in Parachute, CO.  I hope to continue to be an innovative educator and have ideas for projects integrating Industrial Arts and mathematics as well as my experience in the oil field with my Calculus class.  I continue to look forward to serving those around me to the best of my ability and as Christ would have me serve.

I am also currently working on an Education Leadership Master's degree, which will allow me to further enlarge my sphere of influence within the education world.  Many blessings!

Jason, Project Based Math Teacher
