About Mr. Medina...
Position: Math Teacher
Welcome to Arizona College Prep Middle School! I am the Best Teacher in Town, but lucky for you, all teachers at ACP are excellent. I teach math because I enjoy it and hope to make my class an enjoyable learning experience for your student.
I look forward to working with you and your students to have a successful year.
My Education and Professional Background
I received my Bachelor of Science in Education with an emphasis in Mathematics from Northern Arizona University and my Master of Business Administration from Keller Graduate School of Management.
I served in the United States Navy for 4 years navigating ships around the world, and I also served in the United States Army for 6 years providing secured and non-secured communications via satellite, internet and special coms to units around the world.
Currently, as an educator, I've been teaching mathematics for 11 years and hope to continue for many more years to come.
My Educational Philosophy
I believe students need to be active participants in their learning. Therefore, I use math to teach students how to be active participants in the learning process by providing them with skills such as how to study, how to take notes and how to express themselves effectively.
After all, math is not about numbers, equations, or algorithms: it is about understanding. (William P. Thurston)
