Degrees and Certifications:
Mr. Thomas Goerdel
6th grade Math Teacher originally from Fredericksburg Texas. I went to Fredericksburg High School (The Battlin’ Billies), and I graduated from Texas A&M University. I have a Bachelor’s in Elementary Education and a Master’s degree in Educational Administration. I enjoy spending time with my wife and children, competitive trivia, playing board games, drawing, jigsaw puzzles, comic books, fantasy, and sci-fi (especially Star Wars). My biggest pet peeve is grammar and spelling misteaks, ironic as a math teacher.
I’m seeking students who will teach me about current apps like Tik Tok, explain to me things like VSCO girl, and keep me current on today's Hip Hop music scene. They must be living in the extreme of the moment with plenty of drama. Planning for the future, such as keeping notes, studying for tests, or even bringing a pencil to class, will be frowned upon. Anyone who claims to love or even like math will be immediately looked upon with an air of mistrust and suspicion. No matter how much work and effort was clearly put into a lesson to help them be more successful, they are required to provide at least one snarky misguided critique. “This is so boring,” always lands well.
If this sounds like you, then you are exactly the type of student I’m looking for. I can’t wait to create success with you through my genuine care and expertise.
