About MeName: Joseph HeinzSchool: Upper Merion High SchoolRoom No.: E-105Position: Mathematics Teacher
I've been a mathematics teacher for 20 years. I've taught General Math, Pre-Algebra, Algebra I, Geometry, Algebra II, Advanced Algebra/Trigonometry, Pre-Calculus, Physics, and Consumer Math. I spend extra time with students through the soccer teams (boys and girls), wrestling team, chess club, ultimate frisbee club, fellowship of christian athletes club, and the outdoors club. I have a Bachelors of Education in Physics and Mathematics from Kutztown University and a Masters of Education in Administration from Temple University.One thing you'll notice above is that I spend a ton of extra time with students. This is a clear sign that I really enjoy spending time with students.I grew up in both Philadelphia (Frankford) and Oley, PA. I spent half of my youth on a skate board. I enjoy rock climbing, ice climbing, mountain biking, cross country skiing, snowboarding, snowshoeing, alpine climbing, road biking, kayaking/canoeing, and backpacking. If it is outdoors, I'm in for it. If its a sport, I'm in for that too. I don't miss an Eagles game. Movies: luv em. I've become absorbed by Facebook...can you rescue me please. I have 3 girls and one boy: Sarah, Rachel, Benjamin, and Leah. My wife is still the love of my life after 17 years. I was in the Army for 8 years: Infantry (5 years) and then the Reserve Army Band (3 years). I play the saxophone, harmonica, drums, world percussion, and guitar. I like to listen any type of music. I whistle like a pro.
