Mr. Thomas A. Gomez
Be EXTRAORDINARY... Strive for EXCELLENCE... Overcome THE IMPOSSIBLE!!
Teaching Mathematics is my ABSOLUTE passion! This 2019-2020 school year will be my 10th year in education, all of which I am blessed to say have been at Prosper High School. My past educational experience includes teaching Math Models, Algebra 2 (Regular & Pre-AP Levels), Pre-Calculus (Regular & Accelerated Levels), AP Calculus AB & BC, UIL Mathematics, and also a PSAT Prep Class. My teaching responsibilities this year will include AP Calculus AB, Pre-AP Algebra 2, PSAT/SAT/ACT Test Prep, and UIL Mathematics. Connecting students with numerous real world, mathematical applications that surround them each and every day is one of my main focuses. I continually strive to "Raise the Bar" by challenging students' critical thinking skills and aim at deepening their levels of content mastery and understanding; cultivating an environment that gives them opportunities to also create and innovate with newly acquired knowledge. Mathematics can be an amazing journey for all walks of life; therefore in conclusion, my overarching goal is to help students discover numerous ways how math can be extremely FUN and rewarding; despite its stereotypical challenges.
Texas state certified educator with 9+ years of experience. I graduated from The University of North Texas with a BA in Mathematics w/ Secondary Level Certification.
