I am Chris Caloviras, one of the 3rd grade Math and Science teachers.  I have been teaching for over 20 years and have taught each elementary grade at least once.  I have taught in both private and public schools.  This is my second year teaching at Desert Sky. My favorite subject to teach is reading; however, I chose to teach math as I struggled with math as a child.  After spending a few years working part time at a math tutoring center called the Mathnasium, I discovered techniques that help math make sense.  It is my hope that I can help students who both excel and struggle with math to have a better understanding of math.  I also spent a summer working for a summer camp called Mad Science.  Through this experience, I discovered that learning science can be exciting when it is combined with hands on activities.  
I am really looking forward to teaching a new group of students this year and watching them grow academically!
