About Jim Kalscheur...
Position: 8th Pre-algebra / 7th Honors Pre-algebra
Welcome to Junior High Math. I am so excited to be your child's math teacher. A little background information about myself. I started teaching in 1993, and have been in the Chandler Unified School District since 2001. I taught math at Andersen Junior High from 2001-2015. In 2015 I helped open Casteel High School and have been a proud Colt ever since!
My Education and Professional Background
2023-2024 will be my 31st year teaching. I have a firm belief that all kids can learn. Sometimes it can be difficult, but if you push yourself, you will be amazed at what you can accomplish.
My Educational Philosophy
I went to college at NAU (the Harvard of the West!!) and have my Master's from NAU.
The Choice is Yours! Why Choose Casteel High?
I believe with hard work and determination, you can learn anything. I know math can be intimidating for some students, but if you believe then you can achieve.
