Welcome Scholars and Parents to Mr. Spielman’s math class for secondary scholars.
This my second year at John Adams Academy in El Dorado Hills. I have been teaching math for over 15 years (mostly in New York). I am very excited to be working with JAA Scholars and Parents to make learning accessible, exciting, informative, fun, and educational in a manner that they will remember for years to come.
I was born and raised in the New York. I recently (April of 2019) moved from NY to CA. My wife and I have 2 children, both will be attending JAA @ EDH. My daughter (Zoe) is entering 5th grade and my son (Liam) is starting 3rd grade. We also have a dog; his name is Oreo.
My educational background includes earning my Bachelor of Arts while attended the State University of New York at Albany. After graduation, I attended New York Law School where I received my JD and proceeded to practice law for several years. Despite my success in the courtroom, I was drawn to the classroom. I went back to school to earn my Masters of Science in Education from Brooklyn College. I have been teaching jr. high and high school math every since.
I am thrilled to be teaching JAA scholars Math (Math 3, Pre-Algebra, Geometry and Honors Geometry).
