Hello! My name is Travis McBride. I have been teaching for 5 years now. I am very passionate about education. I am the new middle school math teacher for Evergreen Academy. I enjoy teaching math. Research has shown that if students have an understanding of math, they are more likely to succeed in other subjects. I teach math to students from a conceptual basis, which lends a deeper understanding and not the traditional procedural basis, which is all rule-based. I share Evergreen Academy’s mission and vision that each child be known, valued, challenged, and nurtured so that each child looks forward to coming to school each and every day. Although new to Evergreen Academy, I am familiar with the hard work, perseverance, and dedication that it takes to succeed. I look forward to working with all families at Evergreen Academy to establish positive outcomes for all students.
