Mr. Mains


Greetings!  I am Mr. Mains and this is my eleventh year teaching mathematics at Edison, and my FIFTEENTH 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 three sons and a new baby daughter, Julia! Thomas is 7, Joey is 5, Zachary is 2, and I have two dogs named Fawn and Sienna.

*Reading, writing, watching movies, listening to music, playing board games, woodworking, 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 (see my profile picture).

*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.
