Michael D.

SUNY Potsdam


I am a 7-12 teacher in New York State. I taught Algebra, Trig and Precalculus for 5 years before transitioning to the middle level (which I love). I have now been teaching 7,8 and Algebra for the last 10 years. I love all content areas and look forward for the opportunity to create video content for different levels of math I haven't had the opportunity to teach in the last 10 years...trigonometry, pre-calculus and calculus are content areas I truly enjoy.

My education consists of a BA/MA in Mathematics from SUNY Potsdam followed by a MS in Education from Utica College. I am a member of Pi Mu Epsilon (or was back in 2004 when I was in college!) and earned a New York State Master Teacher Fellowship in January 2015.

My wife and I have a 2 and 5 year old, I am passionate about coaching cross-country and track, love studying blackjack and probability and look forward to continuing to refresh my content knowledge by creating content for Numerade.
