Dr. Joe Brandell
I am beginning my 39th year in education, and my 31st at West Bloomfield High School. Currently, I am the Mathematics Department Chairman, a position I have held since 2001. In addition to my work for West Bloomfield Schools, I am also a Lecturer at Oakland University, where I teach graduate students in the School of Education and Human Services. Finally, I also present for the College Board to AP Calculus teachers at regional, national, and international conferences.
I have had several publications in the areas of teacher mentoring, processing student discipline, and mathematics education. My current research explores the impact of poverty on underserved populations in schools.
I enjoy the outdoors, and will be kayaking inland lakes at every opportunity. I also enjoy camping, hiking, and snowshoeing.
