Welcome to Mr. Larson's Home Page
Degrees and Certifications:
I am a 9th grade math teacher and this will be my 21st year of teaching in the Scottsbluff school district, and my second year teaching at SHS. I graduated from the University of Nebraska Kearney with my Bachelors degree in education and then received my Masters in middle-level mathematics from the University of Nebraska Lincoln as part of the Math in The Middle partnership program. In addition to teaching math, I am also the head coach for the girl's soccer team at Scottsbluff High School. I have been coaching the soccer team for 20 years, the last 14 as the head coach. I currently have a National Diploma in coaching through United Soccer Coaches.
In my free time I like to do Crossfit, which is a workout program designed for high intensity, functional movement, that is constantly varied. In the summer of 2013, I became a Level 1 Crossfit Trainer.
I have three daughters who keep me busy as well. They are in 11th, 9th, and 5th grade. My wife Kelli is also a teacher for the Scottsbluff school system.
As we approach our "new normal" there will be changes to how we deliver our math content. The Thursday before we were sent home we set up students with both Google Classroom and Delta Math accounts. We will also be doing AoPS online learning. AoPS will need to be set up still. Google classroom is where my content and messages will be delivered to students. I may also be using the Remind app, however, you all are probably receiving a millon Reminds and I will try not to add to the pile if possible. As always you can still email me at email@example.com and I will get back to you ASAP.
