Luke Robbins

6th Grade Mathematics and Information Technology Teacher

When I first found myself in a challenging classroom, I was awakened, then frustrated, then cycled through several iterations of curiosity, hope, and disappointment. Eventually, gave way to new understandings. Through dedication to this process, I developed an appreciation for those who had frustrated me and realized that they were the ones who cared most. Ever since I've worked to help others find their own path to understanding through mathematics.

Yumiko Akiba

8th Grade Mathematics Teacher

I LOVE Math! Math is my passion! As a professional gymnast, I never saw education as important and it was hard for me to balance school and sports. One day in 8th grade, something that my teacher said to me changed my life completely. She told me that “you can add and I am  excited and proud of you”. From that day onwards, I worked hard and was able to appreciate all aspects of learning and education. Now, I love math and I hope that I can be that teacher to my students. Middle school is so critical to the development of a child. I hope students can see how excited I am when I teach math in the classroom. I want to inspire them to learn more about math and become lifelong learners!
