What’s up guys! My name is Warren Tefft and I’m recent Bryan College grad with a
Bachelor’s in Math Education. Bryan College is in Dayton, TN, the site of the Scopes
monkey trial and is about 45 minutes north of Chattanooga.
This summer I’m teaching math to the high schoolers at Hope for Opelousas.
My plan for this summer is to prepare students for the class they are going to take
during the school year and to help refresh some concepts they may have forgotten
or struggle with. Some of the concepts we are going over include order of
operations, combining like terms, exponents, fractions, and linear equations. I’m
hoping to target more specific concepts for the classes they are going into during the
last couple days. The classes range from Algebra I to Advanced Math, another way of
I think HFO is a great place. The staff here is great and they are really
dedicated to getting the students to better themselves. The students that go here
love it and so do the people working here, making an awesome atmosphere. It’s nice
being able to get more comfortable with my style of teaching in such a chill place.
After this summer, I’ll be returning to Chattanooga to teach Math at Ooltewah
High School. I will also be working on finishing my MBA and be looking for
opportunities for professional development in teaching.
