Using John Saxon's math books, he taught high school mathematics from Algebra ½ through Calculus . He was instrumental in raising the school's average math ACT scores from 13.4 to 21.9 in just four years. The school's scores were above the national average of 20.2 – and this was more than fifteen years ago! Besides exceeding the national averages in math ACT scores, the high school also had more than ninety percent of their seniors taking math courses that were above algebra one. Additionally, the actual number of high school students taking the ACT tests had tripled!
