Hi! My name is Ken Miller and I have been teaching in Torrance at a public continuation high school for the Los Angeles Unified School District for 11 years. I teach science, algebra, career planning, parenting, health, government, and history.
Before I became a teacher, I worked in manufacturing for twenty years. I spent two years as a production control supervisor and one year as a production manager for two hundred employees.
For the last 11 years, I have had numerous opportunities to redesign the curriculum for subjects my students study. I have come to some basic understanding of ways my students learn best. Obviously these methods have to be workable within the context of our classroom restraints. Since so many of my students find algebra to be difficult, I would love to be able to figure out some ways to make algebra more easily understood.
I like Pictionary the most mainly because it can be so funny to watch what people expect their teammates to pick up on from what they tried to draw! I only play it a couple of times a year usually at parties. Board game wise, I guess I would have to say Monopoly, although I haven't played it since I was a kid. I liked it because it was neat to buy houses and property..
