Welcome to Mr. Samsel's Website Page
Hello, my name is William Samsel and I am the Mathematics Specialist at Evergreen Park World Cultures Community School. This is my second year at Evergreen and my 12th year of teaching. During my years of teaching I have taught as a classroom teacher in elementary, math teacher in middle school, elementary math specialist, and K-5 math district program facilitator. I have education degrees from Bethel University (BA) and St. Mary's University (MA). I believe very strongly that everyone is a math person and that math instruction is substantially more about thinking, reasoning, talking, discovering patterns and relationships, and conceptual understanding, rather than mere computation to "get the right answer".
On a personal note, I have been married for 10 years and have two amazing children ages 2 and 5. I enjoy reading, cooking, and playing music. I also run, but my relatiohship with that has recently been less enjoyable than my other hobbies.
I look forward in partnering with you in your child's education. I am excited to work with students at Evergreen Park and expect great things this year!
