My Background

Hi, my name is Joe Lazur and I will be teaching the Intermediate Algebra and Geometry classes again this year. This is my fifth year teaching math at Lake Harriet.

I was an actuary for 22 years before I decided to change careers and teach math. I have a MS in mathematics from the University of Michigan and I received my MN 5-12 math license in July 2013 through the Twin Cities Teacher Collaborative and the University of St. Thomas.  

I live in Linden Hills with my wife and two sons (both of my sons attended Lake Harriet). I enjoy running, downhill skiing, reading and trying to solve puzzles in my free time.  

I am very excited to work with the eighth grade students again this year.

Please feel free to get in touch with me with any questions. Here is my contact information:

email:  joseph.lazur@mpls.k12.mn.us  (preferred approach)

voice-mail:  (612) 692-0039

Please keep in mind that I will not have much time to check voice-mails or respond to emails until after the school day ends.
