Mr. Batkins

8th Grade Algebra 1A and Algebra 1AC


After growing up in Ann Arbor, attending Michigan State University, and teaching in Wisconsin since 2008 I am excited to be back in the Ann Arbor Public School District (2016-17).  


I enjoy spending time with family and friends, playing and watching sports, cooking, and gardening.


I belive in establishing positive relationships with all my students and creating a safe learning environment that allows for exploration and communication.  I believe in an investigative approach to mathematics where concepts and procedures are intertwined in real experiences and activities.  I beleive that discussion extends thinking and allows for more meaningful connections to be made.
