About

I am a Middle and High School Mathematics Teacher. I have been living and teaching internationally for over 10 years. My purpose with this blog is to share my ideas as I learn and grow in the teaching profession. I invite you to comment and share!

Since August 2003, I lived and worked in Antigua, Ghana, Vietnam, and Korea before coming to Singapore.  These experiences have afforded me wonderful opportunities to learn in so many different ways inside and outside the classroom.

In 2012-13, I attended the University of British Columbia full time to complete a Master of Education in Mathematics Education in the Department of Curriculum and Pedagogy. I chose to do this because I wanted to challenge myself and my convictions while interacting face-to-face with a cohort of talented professionals, and further ground my practice in educational research.  I also continued to get some hiking and travelling in, and met some amazing and inspiring people while living at Green College.

It was at this time that I began this blog to process, to express, to explore, to share, and to reflect. Since then, life has changed in even more wonderful ways through marriage and the birth of our daughter.

  1. Dear Robert,
    As a proponent of math education in the United States, we need your help to promote our nationwide math competition by blogging or posting about it on your blog/forum.

    As you probably already know, despite the fact that the US spends the most money on education per capita, our students are ranked 25th globally for math proficiency. The MATHCOUNTS Foundation is a nonprofit dedicated to improving that statistic. MATHCOUNTS’ third annual “ Math Video Challenge” is a math competition for 6th to 8th graders that encourages student innovation as they create and star in their own math videos, thus exciting them to pursue higher education in math.

    As the webmaster of Teaching Expedition, we are asking you to help support this effort by mentioning us in your next blog or forum post or promoting our logo with a link to the site. So far this contest has gathered over 500
    submissions and millions of views on the videos. Our goal this year is this year is to do even better. With your help, we are confident we will reach this goal.

    For more information on MATHCOUNTS or the Math Video Challenge, visit our webpages at mathcounts.org and videochallenge.mathcounts.org/math-camera-action.

    Respectfully,
    Jake Byrnes
