I am a district math supervisor to make the struggle to understand teaching and learning as productive as possible. I've taught a number of different types of secondary math classes, but my expertise lies in geometry and statistics. I have worked in six different schools that are mostly urban, but include public, magnets, start-ups, and one school abroad. Since nothing is relevant without context, here are a few words to describe the school I currently teach at:
  • New England Urban
  • Public K-12 District
  • Ethnically and Culturally Diverse
And, here is a food-inspired pie chart of my advisory students in the first class I ever taught:

Here is a survey of my staff in the district I currently work for:

Forms response chart. Question title: Is a hot dog a sandwich?. Number of responses: 28 responses.

And just in case you need it... here is my official biography:

Bob Janes is the Secondary Math Supervisor for East Hartford Public Schools in East Hartford, Connecticut. In his role, he supports middle and high school teachers through curriculum, coaching, and workshops. Bob strongly believes in the importance of learning and collaboration. He has taught and conducted a study in London, UK; participated in the Park City Math Institute in Park City, Utah; attended the International Congress on Mathematical Education in Hamburg, Germany; received a MET Future Leader grant; been granted a Desmos Fellowship; and has shared his findings at many conferences including NCSM, NCTM, ATOMIC, and TMC. In addition, Bob is an active member of the online mathematics education community and often blogs, tweets, and attends meetups. His current interests include problem-based learning, standards-based grading, and technology integration. His passion for mathematics is equaled only by his love of the outdoors, where he spends much of his time with his wife and his dog, Benny.
