Welcome to Mr. Keith’s Engineering classes I am super excited for the opportunity to be teaching your child at Casteel High School. I have been teaching Project Lead The Way for several years and I'm excited to be teaching it again this year. Teaching is a second career for me. Before becoming a teacher, I worked at the General Motors Desert Proving Ground, in Mesa. During that time, I earned my Engineering Degree at ASU.
My Education and Professional Background
I began teaching middle school science after earning my Masters of Education degree at ASU. When Casteel opened, I was offered a position teaching PLTW to junior high school students. My role has since expanded into high school teaching Honors Digital Electronics and Robotics.
My Educational Philosophy
I feel that a teacher’s role is to guide children, helping them along their academic journey. It is my belief that all students are capable of learning, although they learn at varying speeds and using different techniques. I like to use hands-on activities in my classroom and let the students collaborate in small groups to achieve their goals. I understand and think that mistakes are a normal part of learning, if student's are not making mistakes than they are not challenging themselves.
