"Give a man a fish and you feed him for a  day.

Teach him how to fish and you feed him for a lifetime."

Welcome to math class!

My name is Florencio “Rence” L. Ricohermoso, but the students call me Mr. Rico. I hold a Bachelor of Secondary Education degree with a specialization in Mathematics and a Master of Science in Education degree, Teaching Mathematics 9-12. I have previously taught in private English-instruction schools in the Philippines and in Bangkok, Thailand for over 3 years. This is my 7th school year at Leland and Gray. Since I started in 2009, I have taught Pre-Algebra, Introductory Algebra, Algebra 1, Algebra 2, and Euclidean Geometry. This year, again, I'm teaching grades 7 math (for 4 years now) and Core Math I. I am also coaching an online College Algebra course for University of Texas at Arlington. 

My goal as a teacher is to enable my students to master the topics I introduce to them, and to cultivate a positive attitude toward mathematics as a whole. It's my challenge to show my students that math is fascinating, functional, and even fun! I'm happy to take on this challenge, and to show students the infinite value and usefulness of mathematics.
