Mr. Peter Wise

Sixth Grade Teacher

My educational emphases can be summarized by these three main points:
1) The love of learning
2) The joy of working with young people
3) The love of seeing the light come on (making information accessible and memorable)

 My Experience/Qualifications
I have taught math in the classroom for over 16 years, and have published 8 math workbooks for grades 3-9. Math clubs are an exciting and rewarding endeavor for me. I have had as many as four math clubs at a time with over 73 students. I lead teacher trainings and have presented at the Colorado Association of Gifted and Talented Conference. 

My own two children competed successfully in state and national math competitions. 

In chess, I am an expert in the U.S. Chess Federation, and have coached hundreds of students in before- and after-school chess clubs. Over the past three years our PWES chess teams have placed 2nd and 3rd in Colorado.

About Me
My interests lie in math, history, chess, music, hiking, and photography. I love Colorado because of the abundance of hiking trails and natural beauty. I enjoy working with students, motivating them, cheering them on, and seeing the light come on. My wife is a teacher with the district. My son and daughter both enjoy math and chess. I have two cats, Kit Kat and Snickers.
