Hello! My name is Brendan Dames and I am excited to once again be teaching in Jefferson City; this time, as a math interventionist at South Elementary. I graduated from the University of Missouri in May 2017 with a bachelor's degree in elementary education, before teaching two years of 3rd grade at West Elementary. The past three years I have been a full time graduate student (finishing with a Masters in Math Education) while teaching undergraduate teacher education courses (mathematics methods) at Mizzou.
When not in the classroom, I enjoy going to Missouri Tiger sporting events and adventuring through the city's various paths and trails with my dog, Jake! I also am a big professional sports fan - I grew up in Northeast Ohio and am a fan of anything Cleveland!
Be sure to follow our happenings on this page as well as on Twitter @MrDamesSE. I am looking forward to a great year!
