Rockford R

Instructor
Rockford has an amazing wife, ten beautiful children, and a dog named Charlie. He began teaching in 2002 after a career in corporate marketing and advertising. On September 11, 2001, Rockford was Vice President of marketing with a company in the travel industry. That’s when he decided it was time to do something different with his life. So he became a teacher and has since taught at the elementary, middle, high school, and college levels over that time. Rockford attended UTA for both his Bachelors and Masters Degrees. When Rockford was a kid, he did fine in math, but it wasn’t his favorite subject. That was because he didn’t always “get it” so it made him feel uncomfortable. When he learned there are sometimes new, different, or better ways to understand math, it became his favorite subject. Rockford really digs math now.....A bunch!!

Favorite Number: 13. It was always my lucky sports number on my jersey. I mostly played hockey, soccer, and volleyball. Many cultures view 13 as a lucky number.
