Mr. Scott Cronin
This is my 17th year in education, all of which I have spent as a high school math teacher. I am very excited to be joining the Blue Hawks in this inaugural year for Rock Hill HS. I spent the last 3 years teaching at Prosper HS. 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 five years. This year I am teaching AP Calculus and Honors 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 21 years. The oldest of our three children, Jacob, graduated PHS in the class of 2019 and is attending the University of North Texas. Our older daughter, Grace, graduated PHS in the class of 2020 and is attending Purdue University. Our youngest, Sarah, has spent the last two years at PHS and has moved over to Rock Hill HS this year to be a part of the Blue Hawk class of 2022.
Feel free to contact me (email is the best method) with any questions at anytime.
Go Blue Hawks!!
