Mr. Rightmyer

About Me:

The 2018-2019 school year marks my eighth year teaching mathematics.  I have taught for two years at the college level and five years at the high school level.  I am deeply passionate about sharing with students my love of mathematics.  I see the field of mathematics as one big story and each year as a student you get to read another chapter of that amazing story.  In my also completely biased opinion that story only gets more interesting as you read more and more.  I try to integrate (no pun intended) as much real world math into my classroom so what we learn feels tangible and purposeful.  I want my classroom to feel fun and for you to walk away having learned a lot by the end of the year. 

When I'm not "nerding" out about something STEM related you can find me outside, most likely rock climbing.  In addition to rock climbing I love traveling, hiking, biking (road and mountain), skiing, snowboarding and pretty much anything else you can think about that involves the outside.  Below you can find a few pictures of the types of things I like doing when I'm not at school.  I'm always happy to talk about my adventures in the mountains so if you enjoy getting outside stop by and say hi!

Climbing in one of my favorite winter spots just outside                                     Above is Snowpatch Spire.  A 1000 foot tall climb I was
         of Colorado springs called Shelf Road                                       lucky to climb this past summer in the Bugaboos, a climbing place in British Columbia

What I Love about Teaching:

In this profession we are able to meet so many interesting people.  I'm routinely blown away with all the interesting personalities we as teachers get to meet with every fresh year of students.  This makes teaching one of the most dynamic professions anyone could have.  I love to hear students stories and learning about new things through getting to know you.  It doesn't hurt that I also love math and love showing students how cool the field of math and science is.  There isn't anything quite as great as explaining a mind blowing concept like quantum field theory to someone who has never heard about it before.
