My name is Mike Tira, and I will be teaching 8th Grade Math at the O'Farrell Charter School this year. I like to approach Mathematics from different points of view, especially through modes of writing and dialogue, avenues that many would not immediately associate with math. Math is hard; my job is to show students how to make it easier to deal with.
I graduated with a BA and a Teaching Credential from the University of San Diego, and I have been involved in education ever since. In past years, I have also taught History and Mathematics at the high school level. I also hold a Master's Degree in Education with an emphasis in Literacy and Digital Learning.
My hobbies include sports (Cubs, Niners, Nets and Lightning), exercising and spending time with friends and family. I am also a fan of unique and interesting foods and I enjoy reading and listening to a variety of Podcasts.
Please reach out if you have any questions or concerns.
