Frees, Brian - 7th Math

Welcome to our classroom!
 
Our goal is to have a productive year in math class providing your son or daughter with targeted math instruction while working to instill in them a love for mathematics and learning.  We will be using a combination of direct instruction, small group activities, and differentiated instruction to ensure that every student in class experiences academic success in our classroom. Our students will access our class notes using One Note this year, and they will have access to their homework assignments through our Google classrooms.  
 
This is my third year teaching in Buncombe County, and I am excited and honored to be a part of Valley Springs Middle School!  I have fourteen years of middle school and high school teaching experience in NC, most recently in Henderson County.  My work experience includes teaching, sales, small business owner, and seven years as a KC-135 navigator and Captain in the US Air Force.  I have earned a BS in Mathematics and a Masters Degree in Educational Leadership.  I was honored to be one of the three NC finalists in 2013 for the Presidential Award for Excellence in Math & Science Teaching, and I was selected by Gov. McCrory in 2015 to participate in the NC Textbook Commission.

I look forward to a fun and rewarding school year working with our students!
