Welcome to 8th Grade Mathematics
Hello! My name is Mr. Payan and I am looking forward to this school year because I will be using technology in my classroom as I use a program called “air server” which will allow me to do use integrated technology in the classroom. I will be using this program in conjunction with another program called Educreations which will allow me to record my lesson plan in advance and allow my students to access the lesson before hand and complete assignments along with assessments. The air server program will also allow me to write and work out problems on my IPAD while being projected on the screen for my students to see and follow. It also allows my students to work out a problem and therefore allow me to immediately check for understanding. I am very excited about the opportunity to use technology in my classroom!
I received my Associate’s degree from El Paso Community College in Education of Arts specializing in Teacher Preparation: Middle School and graduated with honors in the top 10 percent. I went on to receive my Bachelor’s Degree in Education from the University of Texas at El Paso and also graduated in the top 10 percent with honors. I continued my studies and received my Master’s of Education-Math Instructional Specialist from UTEP and did so with honors.
For further instructions and/or assistance feel free to contact me during my conference period from 1:15-2:00 PM daily.
