My name is Mr. Byrnes, and I have the wonderful opportunity to be teaching math here at Taylor's Crossing. I was born and raised in Kalispell, Montana and because of that, most of my interests and hobbies bring me outside. I love to hike, fish, and explore. In addition to these, I have another passion, I love to teach. I went to school at Montana State University to pursue a career as a math teacher. Whilst there I learned a lot about hard work and dedication, but above all else I learned how to fight. Now, I don't mean that I got in a lot of fights in college, but I did take a lot of challenging classes that I could never have imagined that I would pass. I had to work day and night to succeed, and believe it or not, I did. In my class I expect each of my students to fight for their learning and their success. As a teacher I expect nothing less. I am very much looking forward to this year and getting to know each and every one of you. This year is going to be fun!
