I teach Algebra, Geometry, and Trigonometry/Pre-Calculus at Mid-Peninsula High School, a pretty special place. We work with a variety of students with different backgrounds and learning styles. There are many parts of Mid-Pen that stand out – our truly student centered approach, our close relationships that make the community a family, and the autonomy afforded our teachers. The 9:30 start time is pretty nice, and the variable credit policy, although it takes a bit to get used to, is one of the most effective tools I’ve experienced as an educator.
