Bethany Blackwood

Math Teacher

I am excited to make the transition to DCI from Chicago, where I have been teaching high school math for six years. I have recently finished my MA in Educational Technology from Michigan State University, building on my BA in Mathematics Education and French. I am passionate about math and love trying to engage my students in new ways so they play a crucial role in their own math education. I hope to help students open doors for their future for college and beyond. Personally, I speak French and I'm slowly learning Spanish and Swahili; I look forward to learning more from my students and colleagues at DCI! Outside of school, I am fairly active and competitive; I enjoy playing Ultimate Frisbee, cards and board games, as well as biking, camping and traveling.
