Making Sense of Math: The Teacher of the Month at Hammonton Middle School [AUDIO]
Wednesday, I visited Geoff Gollihur’s class at Hammonton Middle School. Mr. Gollihur, our Lite Rock Teacher of the Month, is a math teacher at Hammonton Middle.
Mr. Gollihur was nominated by his student Ryan Figueroa, who has been impressed with his teacher’s ability to explain and make sense of mathematics to his students.
Having struggled with math myself at Ryan’s age, I was also impressed!
We had a fun visit in Mr. Gollihur’s class, including a pizza party courtesy of Carluccio’s Coal-Fired Pizza in Northfield.
Mr. Gollihur won a membership to Island Gym for his selection as the Lite Rock Teacher of the Month, and Ryan may be the winner of a $2000 scholarship for nominating his teacher.
