Hi there! I am Bruce Gammill and I teach math classes at Charles City High School. Specifically, I am responsible for enlightening students in the fields of Algebra, Algebra II, and Calculus. This is now my 3rd year at Charles City High School, and serves as my third year of teaching experience. I couldn't be happier with the opportunity I have to challenge so many bright young minds and assist them to rise to the rigorous expectations of a mathematics course. My goal is to bring a fresh and interesting perspective on math, relate the problem solving skills to students, and prepare students for their future as they progress into upper level courses. I particularly find joy in being able to motivate students to see math differently and instilling confidence into all of my students. While most feel that they are "bad at math" or "can't do it", I take these attitudes and try to turn them around and show everyone that they "can do it" and it really isn't "too hard". There is nothing more important to me than the success of my students; I plan to dedicate my time each year towards assisting each student towards that success.
On a more personal note, I was born in Norfolk, VA but with my father being in the military I have moved around quite a bit. I've lived in Williamsburg, VA, California, Hawaii, and Georgia. In 2009 I moved to Richmond Virginia to pursue a degree in Mathematics with concentration in Secondary Education at Virginia Commonwealth University. After graduating VCU in 2013 with a B.S. in Mathematics, I immediately sought the opportunity to join Charles City Public Schools. In addition to my interest in education, I enjoy traveling and sight seeing, hiking, playing/watching hockey, music, going to the movies, and cooking. This past summer I completed a road trip across the country to California and back, stopping at many national parks along the way and even got engaged. I couldn't be happier with the direction my life is going and I am excited to serve another year as an educator for Charles City Public Schools.
