John Burke

Meet Your Professor:

I did my undergraduate work at the University of Michigan, earning a Bachelor's degree in Mathematics with a minor in Computer Science and received both a Master's degree in Mathematics and a Master's degree in Computer Science from the University of Colorado.

For over 25 years I worked in industry managing IT departments for a diverse collection of companies before returning in 2003 to my original love: teaching Mathematics.

Since then I have taught over 250 classes at 5 different schools, teaching nearly everything from Arithmetic to Calculus III. I am particularly interested in the intersection of technology, mathematics and teaching.

I live with my wife, Ann, in Natomas. In my spare time, I like to read, travel and keep at least one finger in technology.
