My name is John Thayer and I am excited to be teaching another year here at Granada! This is my 19th year as a teacher. I started my career in California teaching at the community college and high school level, then taught in New York, and then in Albuquerque, New Mexico for 11 years as a bilingual math teacher. I love finding great math projects to use in my classes and am always looking for new ideas. I moved back to California a couple of years ago with my wife and two kids. When I am not teaching, I spend time with them. I also am a songwriter and musician, a home cook, an aspiring open-water swimmer, and an avid reader. This site is for students in my classes and their parents, or anyone else looking for math project ideas!
