Mr. Chris Becker
I am originally from Laddonia, MO and earned my B.S. in Mathematics and M.A.E in Math Education from Truman State University in Kirksville, MO. I enjoy traveling, cooking, and running. I began teaching as a high school math teacher in the Smithville School District in the fall of 2015. I came to Smithville for its strong reputation for academics and suport and have enjoyed my time here so far!
Forming relationships with students and helping them develop a passion for math are the main reasons I teach. I believe that students and teachers can learn from each other and that enhances the learning environment for everyone. This year I am most excited about helping create a strong sense of community at our school and see my students achieve both academically and in the outside world.
This school year, I will be teaching Algebra II, College Algebra, and AP Statistics. I also serve as one of the advisors for the High School Student Council and as an adivsor to the Smithville Gay-Straight Alliance. Finally, I will also be a 12th Warrior Time teacher this year and I am BUILDING STRONG!
