Degrees and Certifications:
HI! My name is Kate Degner. This is my first year at South East Junior High, but my 10th year teaching secondary mathematics and my 13th year in mathematics education. Currently, I am an assistant professor of STEM and Mathematics Education at St. Ambrose University--which means that after I get done teaching Geometry at South East Junior High every day, teach teachers how to teach mathematics!
Aside from math, I also love running, baking, reading, and constructing regular pentagons with a compass and straightedge :)
My all time favorite joke is:
What did the acorn say after it grew up?
I look forward to working with you this school year!
