Degrees and Certifications:
Mr. Goede - 5th Grade Teacher
I have been teaching in the Oregon Trail School District since 2006. Before getting my degree and teaching in the U.S., I taught in Japan for 4 years. I learned a lot about Japanese culture, education, and now also speak Japanese fluently.
One of my favorite subjects to teach is math, although I really didn't like it growing up as a student. I strive to teach math in ways that are useful, exciting, and fun for students. We often share different strategies for solving problems in class and I get inspired when students share creative solutions.
When I'm not teaching, I enjoy snowboarding, skateboarding, and biking.
