Graduating from UConn Neag School of Education, Mr. Way is thrilled to be part of the Walker’s community. To him, math is a lens to see the world, a language that connects disciplines, and a critical tool to our democratic participation. He is aspired to not only teach the students content, but also how to see the world through math!

Walker’s dedication to approach education with a critical lens and human right approach enlightened me.
In the dorm, with my cats.
Ethics class was very different from traditional curriculum and it bridged math to so many different things to me, such as logic in this case.
To me, teaching is an act of belief: believing in the students, believing in the world, believing that it will be better. I want to help build this future of humanity by bring out the joy in education for the future of humankind.
Math to many people seems distant and abstract. But there are so many elements of life in them that we usually can’t see. What does it mean to enlarge an image? What does it mean to be fair? What does it mean to be a good investment?
