Hello All! My Name is Brandon Mathes and I am one of the 7th grade math teachers at MMS. I'm looking forward to meeting you and your child and also working with your child throughout the 2017-2018 school year! I am an Oklahoma kid, I was born and raised right here in Mustang, Oklahoma, as I graduated from Mustang High School in 2005. I went college for 5 years and played baseball as well, after that I was chasing a dream and played 5 season of Independent professional baseball for 2 different teams. After giving up my dream, I got into education to try and help shape and change the lives of young children the same way that some of my teachers did me. This will be my 6th year as a teacher and my 5th year at MMS. I recently got married on June 20th of 2015, my wifes name is Nikki and she is also a teacher out in the Deer Creek School District. I am also a huge OU fan in all sports, I also love the OKC Thunder and Denver Broncos, as well as the Atlanta Braves.
I want this year to be FUN while your child learns in my classroom. I will do everything in my will power to help your student have a better awareness of mathematics by the end of the year. My goal is always to make sure they leave my class and go to 8th grade knowing at least one more topic than they did the year before. I will teach thing in various was to keep the kids engaged and learning.
As long as your child brings the effort and energy to learn, I will find a way for them to succeed in my classroom!
