It's finally here!!

The Mathematics Division is moving to the new wing on Monday, March 19th. The classrooms on the 400 level have whiteboard desks that can be seated in many different configurations based on students' needs on a day-to-day basis. There are two large TV monitors for projecting and whiteboards galore for students to write on. In addition, there is flexible seating available in the commons space ready for students to sit and get to work! We are so excited to bring all of our students into this beautiful new space starting next week!

Teacher Spotlight: Mr. Myhre at East Campus

Mr. Jason Myhre has been teaching math at McHenry High School for 16 years! He has taught many different courses in math, and was recently the co-sponsor for the Gender Sexuality Alliance (GSA) as well as a Digital Literacy Coach. Mr. Myhre says that his favorite thing about teaching is "helping students (try to) find joy in studying mathematics and watching their self-esteem and attitudes toward math improve over a school year."

If he couldn't be a teacher, you would likely find Mr. Myhre as an astronaut, a tax accountant or maybe even an Avenger! He loves traveling, gaming, read comic books, see movies and go to the theater.
