To all  scholars Welcome to the Shark Tank!!!
My name is Mr. Miller.
I grew up in New Jersey
I played Ice Hockey and ran Track in High School.
I was in the USAF for 6 years.
I was an Aircraft Mechanic and Combat Controller.
I worked for many companies before becoming a teacher.
I graduated from UNM.
I have been a teacher for 26 years.
I have 2 kids an 22 year old boy, and an 12 year old girl.
My last gig was at Cibola High School where I taught Algebra 2, Statistics, and Transitions to College Math.
I am very pumped about working with you, you are going to learn soooo much.
Why Sharks? They are probably the most mathematically correct life form.

The math department is going to go virtually paperless. However, for the first few weeks the scholars may not have their chromebooks/laptops yet.  So we will be doing some things using paper and pencil for a few weeks.  After that all assignments will be assigned and completed on  ALEKS software.  They will need to have something to write with but a large amount of paper is not necessary.  I want them to learn to use the technology to do what they would normally do using pencil and paper.  Welcome to the 21st century.
