Hi, my name is Joe Lazur and I will be teaching the Algebra 8, Intermediate Algebra and Geometry classes again this year. This is my fourth 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 seventh and eighth grade students again this year.
Please feel free to get in touch with me with any questions. Here is my contact information:
email: firstname.lastname@example.org (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.
