Welcome to 6th, 7th, and 8th Grade Math.
Meet Mrs. Kem Deehr
I’m very excited to join the St. Brendan family! Prior to St. Brendan, I taught middle and high school math in Virginia, Tennessee, and California. I also worked as a Certified Public Accountant for 10 years. I received a BBA in Accounting and an MBA in Finance from Kent State University, and my Teaching Certification from Virginia Wesleyan University.
I live in Bothell with my husband, John, and our two children. Eli (11) is an avid gymnast, and Reagan (9) loves to dance. John retired from the Navy in 2016 after 30 years of service. When I’m not teaching, I enjoy dancing, billiards, cross-stitching, sudoku, and mysteries.
Three interesting facts about me:
1. I got married on my birthday.
2. I’ve wanted to be a math teacher since I was six years old.
3. I’ve visited 49 out of 50 states (only missing North Dakota).
I’m passionate about math, and I guarantee my enthusiasm will be contagious in the classroom!
6th Grade – How many centimeter cubes fit into a file cabinet? Students worked to discover the answer as we continue our work in Geometry exploring volume.
7th Grade – What better way to prepare for a test in Geometry than with Speed Dating?!? Each student shared his expertise with peers.
8th Grade – Quad means four and there are four ways to multiply quadratic equations. Students moved from station to station and selected which method was their favorite.
Prodigy Math Game – Students are having fun playing this innovated, educational math video game. They are to do so at least one hour a week at home. Take a look!
