As an educator, I feel that I must understand the importance of providing not only a rigorous
learning environment for my students, but also creating a safe and nurturing space for my
students to “fail forward:” to experience failure without the emotional turmoil that could
accompany not succeeding.
Precalculus & Calculus
College Instructor and former high school math educator.
In my 26+ years teaching I have instructed over 2000 students. All of my students have attended college with over half graduating with honours.
Essentially, I advocate for students to own and be responsible for their own education.
Mr. Council has experience with learners of all ages, ranging from elementary to college-level.
His recent forays into the post-secondary world have awaken a desire to move into the upper
level math courses and his desire to move forward with this ambition grows daily. It is
imperative that he utilizes as many strategies and techniques to deliver content and curriculum
to his students to develop and maintain long-term retention. His students grow into self-advocates
who understand the need to own and be responsible for their own education. To this end, his students have consistently scored in the 90% or higher ranges on district and state standardized tests.
Professor Council is an amazing professor. He's definitely not your average professor. He makes you work for your grade, and participation in class is a must. He got me to come out of my shell, and think outside the box. He not only wants to improve your math skills, but your creative thinking skills as well. Overall he was an amazing professor.
