Mr. Scott Cronin
This is my 16th year in education, all of which I have spent as a high school math teacher. This year is my 3rd year teaching at Prosper HS, and I am thrilled to be back this year. I have previously taught at Chantilly HS in Northern Virginia and spent 11 years at Frisco HS just down the road.
Most of my teaching experience is with PreCalculus (both on level and PreAP), AP Calculus BC and AP Statistics. I have experience in Algebra 1, Geometry, Algebra 2, PreCalculus, Calculus and Statistics. I have also been an AP Reader for AP Statistics for the past three years. This year I am teaching AP Statistics, AP Calculus and Pre-AP Algebra 2.
I graduated from Virginia Tech University with a MA in Education (Secondary Math) and I have a BS in Electrical Engineering. I previously worked in the telecommunications field for 13+ years before joining the teaching profession. This experience allows me to answer the ever-present student question: "When will I ever use this?"
I incorporate technology when appropriate. I believe that technology is a tool and a asset, but not a crutch. Good use of thinking skills and common sense are very important in my opinion. I like to have discussions about real-life topics in my class that pertain to the lesson at hand. Sometimes we might not even agree on things -- and that's ok!!
I am happily married to my wife, Gretchen, and have been for 20 years. The oldest of our three children, Jacob, graduated PHS in the class of 2019 and is attending the University of North Texas. We have two daughters, Grace and Sarah, who both attend PHS and are in the classes of 2020 and 2022 respectively.
