Mr. Scott Cronin
This is my 15th year in education, all of which I have spent as a high school math teacher. This year is my 2nd 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 the last 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 also been an AP Reader for AP Statistics for the past three years. This year I am teaching AP Statistics, AP Calculus and on-level Statistics.
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 19 years. All three of our children attend PISD schools and, in fact, will all be at the high school this year. Sarah is our youngest and is a 9th grader and Grace is in her junior year. Jacob, our oldest, is in the class of 2019.
