Degrees and Certifications:
Greetings! I am Mr. Mains and this is my eighth year teaching mathematics at Edison, and my twelfth year teaching (man, I'm getting old). I have previously taught fourth and fifth grade in other local districts. I am dedicated to helping every child succeed and to appreciate the wonders of math. I expect my students to be prepared to work hard everyday and strive for excellence.
Some other facts about me:
*I have two sons. Thomas is 4, Joey is 2, and I have a dog named Fawn. I will be expecting my third child this January (it's another boy!)
*Reading, writing, watching movies, listening to music, and being outdoors are some fun things I like to do with my free time.
*My favorite sport to watch is baseball and my favorite team is the Yankees (sorry for any Mets fans out there).
*My family loves going up to Lake George in upstate New York throughout the year (it's pretty awesome).
*My wife is also an educator, as well as my sister, and my father (now retired). So, I come from quite a teaching family!
*I love food, but if I had to choose my favorite dish, it would be anything my wife cooks (she's pretty amazing at it).
*I expect my students to give 100%, but I will give back 100% of myself to help them succeed.
