TEACHING EXPERIENCE

Jay Waggoner, a native of Fremont, Ohio, received a Bachelor's Degree in Mathematics from Ohio Northern University and a Master of Arts in Math Education from Bowling Green State University. Jay spent his entire 39 year career teaching for Shawnee Local Schools, near Lima, Ohio. Though he started at the junior high level, he soon moved to the high school level where, at one time or another, he taught every math course ever offered at Shawnee, including AP Calculus, which he taught for the last thirty years of his career. Now retired from teaching, he picks up spending money for vacations by selling used books on eBay and abebooks . . . and writing puzzle books. With the used books, he hopes to sell them for more than he paid for them. With the puzzle books, he hopes to either help many learn or relearn math, and eventually wishes to make math a mainstream recreational activity. That goal will have been attained when John (or Joan) Q. Public sees the license plate - MW1331, and thinks: "My Word, eleven cubed."

MY TEACHING STYLE

It varies with the class and the chemistry of the class BUT as I progressed in my career two things became increasingly important and evident: First, students (REGARDLESS of their age/class) need to get out of their seats with some degree of frequency and up to the black/white boards to do problems. Only by doing can one learn. Students love it. Second, ALL students need constant review. I try to make reviewing fun with puzzles.

HONORS/AWARDS/SHINING TEACHER MOMENT

Making Shawnee the Best It Can Be Presenter at several Ohio Council of Teachers of Mathematics meetings. Speaker and presenter at many meetings and sessions.

MY OWN EDUCATIONAL HISTORY

Graduated from Fremont Ross High School. Bachelor of Arts with a Math Major from Ohio Northern University. Master of Arts with a Cognate in Mathematics from Bowling Green State University.
