Mr. Dave Dahlberg


My job is to make math easier for my students.

I have implemented a discovery format to get students to detect and discern how mathematical concepts work as they try out various introductory activities designed to challenge and explore what the topics mean in their own thinking. Their next step will be to discuss how their peers look at the challenges and how they have developed their ideas about how to solve the task. I will attempt to lead students to understand how the concepts  work and why they work without using "tricks" and shortcuts. 

My experiences in education range from teaching in a one-room school (8 grades in a classroom) in a small parochial school in Oklahoma to middle school level self-contained classrooms in Wisconsin during the 80's and 90's. After gaining my high school math credentials in the state of Washington, I have had the opportunity to work near Puget Sound in Washington, on the beautiful coast of Oregon, and  in SW Washington state. 

Parents, It's easiest to contact me through email.
