Josh Shoeman

My name is Josh Shoeman and I have my Bachelor's Degree in Mathematics from the University of Northern Colorado. I have been a teacher for many years and truly enjoy teaching students both mathematics and various life skills. I believe that the greatest skill that math helps develop is perseverance since there are often many parts to a problem that may not have a quick solution. The world is a wide array of puzzles and the logical thinking of math is one way for many to tackle the world. 

One of my fun facts is that I have played video games professionally for over half a decade and am considered one of the best in Colorado at Super Smash Bros. I have also been developing my skills as a setter in volleyball and enjoy the challenge of learning new things. One of my largest values as a teacher is to create a sense of belonging for everyone. 

Education is not filling of a pail but the lighting of a fire.
