Algebra II/Trig & AP Stats Teacher
My name is Joan Rickard and this will be my first year teaching at Berean Christian High School. I am very excited to be teaching at my son's school and able to work with all the teacher's that have had such an impact over the years. I have been teaching in private schools for the last 5 years. I have mostly been teaching math classes, but have also taught middle school and high school science, history, and economics. I have taught in classrooms and in one on one settings. I have enjoyed working with the students and helping them to understand subjects that they had previously found difficult. I have been tutoring professionally since I was 16. I love math and like to get my students excited about it as well.
I grew up in So. Cal went to the US Coast Guard Academy and graduated with a degree in Civil Engineering. I was active duty for 5 years and then got out to try my Civil Engineering career. I ended up moving into the computer side of the business and started working in Geographic Information Systems (GIS), think Google maps on steroids. I worked for the City of Walnut Creek in Information Technology until I had my first son and then took 8 years off to stay home with my two boys. I switched careers to teaching when there was an opening at Contra Costa Christian for a math teacher.
