About Me

Who am I?

My name is Mark Alvaro.

Why Blog?

First and foremost, I really want to join the Math Twitter Blogosphere!.  I love reading through all of the #MTBoS tweets, and I often find myself hopping between different math teachers’ blogs.  I can’t believe how awesome my fifth year of teaching ended after finding so many awesome tools, ideas, lessons, and assessments on the internet.

I first heard about the Math Twitter Blogosphere when a teacher in my state organization (WVCTM holla!) presented a session on it.  Unfortunately, I couldn’t attend, but I asked my friends about it, so basically I was there!

I am especially interested in using the blog to reflect on what’s working and what’s not with my teaching.  Hopefully I can make something useful along the way!


What do I plan to blog about? 

Of course I have some grandiose plans:  reviewing math resources, presenting ideas for problem-based learning, discussing hot topics in the field, things that interest or irk me, and hopefully posting original lessons, tasks, problems, etc.


What should you know?

I teach math and computer science courses a high school in Morgantown, WV.  I am a shameless Google and Android fanboy.  I am the Webmaster for WVCTM!  In my spare time I enjoy binge watching Netflix anything (who doesn’t?), learning to code, reading, video games, and guitar.
