Hello and thank you for taking a second to read a bit about me! My name is Casey Ulrich, and I am currently a math teacher at San Francisco International High School. I teach 9/10 math to freshman and sophomores. Before moving to California, I taught in Menomonee Falls, Wisconsin.
I am also a STEM teacher-mentor with Trellis Education, a student-support liaison, Complex Instruction Facilitator, and math department head. I am currently pursuing my National Board Teaching Certification.
Why do I teach?
I teach because I love people. I enjoy making connections with students and pushing them past their level of comfort to a place where they can grow and understand the world more deeply.
I aim to have students understand that the world does not consist of set knowledge and rules; instead, I want them to understand their existence in time, connecting what we learn to what came before us and to what will come after us. I want students to believe that they can contribute to the world in the unique and passionate way that only they can.
I wake up blessed every day, and I look forward to sharing my life with students, parents, peers, and community members that cross my path. I always want to keep growing, learning, and understanding the world more deeply. Please reach out to say hi and please engage with anything you read or question. It’s nice to meet you! 🙂
