Biography & Expectations

My name is Andrew Teiman.  I will be teaching Middle School Social Studies. The following is my brief background. Firstly, I was born and raised in Phoenix, AZ, and this is my third year teaching at Academy of Math and Science.  During the 2016-2017 school year, I taught 5th grade Social Studies and ELA, and during the 2017-2018 school year I taught 7th and 8th grade Social Studies. Previously, I taught 5 years of English as a Second Language (ESL) in China, including one year at the middle school level.  I received my BA degree at Humboldt State University in California, and I have completed coursework at the graduate level. Most importantly, I am thrilled and honored to be a part of the AMS Team, and truly excited about teaching your children in the upcoming year. My expectations are for each and every student to achieve a 100% passing rate through rigorous and academic excellence combined with creative, innovative, and critical thinking.  In addition, I believe the students should foster character traits that will lead them to becoming upright and responsible citizens of the world.
