Rick Barlow

MYP Grade 7-8 Math Instructor

 Who I am as a teacher:

  • I believe students learn best in a high challenge, high support environment and I try to create that type of environment for my students.

  • I struggled with math in middle and high school so I understand that math anxiety is real!  

  • I believe making mistakes and learning from those mistakes is an essential part of understanding mathematics. 

  • I expect all students to communicate their mathematical thinking by speaking and writing about math.

  • I believe that effort and reflection are more important than speed and correctness.
