JPII will welcome Tim Dameron to teach math and serve as the professional development consultant to the principal on July 1, 2021. Dameron currently teaches Pre-Calculus and Advanced Placement (AP) Calculus AB at an area private school and has taught Algebra I, Math 1, Geometry, Algebra II, Math 3, Pre-Calculus, and AP Calculus AB for students at the standard, honors, and AP levels at J.H. Rose High School.
In addition to teaching high school, Dameron is an instructor in the College of Education at East Carolina University. He specifically teaches in the elementary and middle grades department where he instructs future middle grades teachers best teaching practices in curriculum, instruction, assessment, classroom management, and teaching seminars in all core subject areas: math, social studies, science, and English. This, along with experience leading faculty and staff development workshops, will be valuable in his role as the professional development consultant.
When Dameron’s high school math teacher allowed him to explain homework problems on the board for his classmates, he knew he wanted to be a teacher. “It’s rewarding to be able to teach students a subject in which so many of them are afraid.” Dameron earned both of his degrees from ECU: a bachelor of science in mathematics education and a master of arts in middle school mathematics. He holds a professional educator’s M-class License for Secondary Mathematics Grades 9-12. While at Rose, Dameron served as a math department chair, a facilitating teacher of ACT preparation, clinical teacher for secondary math interns from ECU, and was named Teacher of the Year.
Outside of the classroom, Dameron enjoys all things soccer including coaching his daughter’s PGSA team. He was the women’s head soccer coach at Rose for 12 years and founded the Fitness, Agility, Speed Training (F.A.S.T) soccer skills camp.
