Degrees and Certifications:
Welcome to the 2020-21 school year. My name is Rich Tanner and I will be face of your Geometry class on line or the guy in front of the class when we go back to in-person learning. I know that there will a lot of questions and stresses as we get things started back for the new school year. I won't claim to have all the answers (or maybe I will), but I will be here to help you as best I can. If you have questions or concerns, please let me know. Remember, I can't help you if don't let me know you have a question.
Now, about me.....
I was born and raised in the SF Bay Area (Go A's) before eventually moving out to the central valley. After graduating from Tracy High School, I attended the Massachusetts Institute of Technology. After graduating and moving back to the warmth of the Central Valley (I hate snow), I began subbing in the district I graduated from and eventually got a job teaching at West High School, the new school in town. In 2014, after 18 years at West High, I moved to Texas with my wife. I spent five years teaching Algebra at Judson High School before getting a chance to move to Steele to teach Geometry and be the Assistant Golf Coach. My first year here was great....except for the 4th quarter....
I look forward to seeing each of you online or in person.
