Maxwell Wienecke - STEM Teacher

Get to Know CBA’s STEM Teacher

I truly love to learn and I have found that nothing teaches me more about myself than helping others grow. Then to watch myself grow and become a better teacher… which then helps my students to learn more… which then helps me to teach better… you get the idea! It brings me such a feeling of joy and purpose that I couldn’t see myself doing anything else.

Interesting things about myself

a) At one point in my life I owned 3 cows, 5 goats, 4 dogs, 3 cats, 2 rabbits, and about 110 chickens all at the same time. (no partridge was involved but I did have a pear tree)

b) I can play most musical instruments, even some of them well, and I often can be found with a book in my hand and occasionally a frying pan (I love to cook).

c) This fall I am becoming a certified yoga instructor and can walk on my hands!

After years of tutoring while in high school, I made the decision to go to East Carolina University and Major in Mathematics Education. This lead me to eventually earn my Masters Degree in Economics. I returned to Raleigh and took a position as the resident Math Professor at Miller-Motte College (MMC) Raleigh, a title that I still hold today.

For a time, while teaching Math as a Professor, I began working with three Wake Forest families in developing a piece of old farmland into a working educational farm; hence all the animals.

Classroom Notes

FOCUS:  

(STEM) Science, Technology, Engineering and Mathematics.  

Our curriculum has a focus of these academic disciplines to facilitate learning and growth. We academically engage in Natural Science, Biology, Physics, Chemistry, by using Logic, Statistics and the Scientific Method. 

To achieve this goal, we use STEMscopes which is the leader in PreK-12 curriculum. Created by Accelerate Learning Inc., It provides comprehensive digital resources, supplemental print materials, and hands-on exploration kits that drive engagement and academic growth.
