Welcome to Mr. Carlson's Website
I am in my 10th year of teaching. I have a BA in Secondary Mathematics from Arizona State University and a Master's in Educational Technology from Grand Canyon University. I have worked in several industries with my most recent before entering the teaching profession being 10 years at the Intel Ocotillo campus as both an Intel employee and contractor. My last position was a Data Analyst with the Logistics division.
I like to inspire students to discover the math versus the teacher just giving instruction. This is done with activities that engage the students to explore and problem solve. It is important for students to know that missteps are part of the journey. I help them find real-world applications of the math and utilize technologies to help the students in this exploration.
