Degrees and Certifications:
This is my third year at Woodcreek and I love it here! I'm a Bay Area transplant , and moved here couple years ago with my wife Mrs. Snider (who teaches here too!). I taught in Marin for 9 years after I graduated in 2005 from Chico Sate where I majored in Mathematics Education. I earned my credential from Sonoma State University in 2007 and have been immersed in teaching ever since.
I've taught all levels of math from Pre-Algebra up to Pre-Calculus. When someone asks me what my favorite class to teach is, it's hard to chose... they all have their different challenges and I'm always up for a math explanation challenge.
My wife and I enjoy getting out into the great outdoors whenever we can. The summer of 2014 & 2015 we backpacked the Jonh Muir Trail (140 miles in '14 and 200 miles in '15). She's a trooper! We're looking forward to getting out and logging some miles this summer in our own backyard on the PCT. We bought a house about 10 min east of Auburn and are only half an hour from the high country and all the trails, lakes and peaks to go with them.
