Screen Shot 2017-07-20 at 4.31.51 PMHello 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 working with 521 Dimensions to develop the ConquerED application which aims to help students become reflective and better understand their strengths and needed areas of growth.  It is an easy and powerful tool for students to reflect each day and allows teachers with a plethora of formative data which they can use to coach students and improve instruction.


 Why do I teach?

I teach because I love people.  I enjoy making connections with students 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 those from the past and to those that 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 beyond belief, and I hope that 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! :)

      Thanks Ryan! I appreciate you taking the time to look through the site. I’ve got so many thoughts I just have the need to put them somewhere. I figured here is as good as any!

    Hey Casey,

    Hope you’re having a great day!

    I’m doing an expert roundup on my site and I think many new Math teachers using education technology products in their classroom like me would love to know your answer to this question :

    If you could only use 3 Education technology tools/apps/sites for your teaching which 3 tools would you choose? e.g. WolframAlpha, KhanAcademy and Inside Mathematics.

    Thanks in advance!

    As soon as I’m done compiling the results, I would inform and link back to your blog/site.

    Thank you!
    Ishan
