Brian Shriwise

Registrar

(since 1984)

Email: bshriwise@southwesternacademy.edu

Extension: 208

BIRTHPLACE: Dodge City, Kansas

COLLEGE DEGREE: B.A. History (Secondary education emphasis), Fort Hayes State University

CLASSES TAUGHT: Jr. High Math

I AM IN CHARGE OF THE FOLLOWING SCHOOL EVENTS/ACTIVITIES: Arranging and transporting students to SAT and ACT test centers.

INTERESTS OTHER THAN TEACHING: Sports, Cooking, Travel, and Restaurants.

I LIKE TEACHING AT SOUTHWESTERN BECAUSE: The small size and the family-like feeling. It is very much like where I attended Elementary and High School in Kansas.

FAVORITE QUOTE: “If you are going to dance you have to pay the piper.”

MY TEACHING PHILOSOPHY: Teaching is learning and learning is teaching. As an educator, I can always learn from my peers and students, and through my learning I am teaching them how to learn. It is important that the basic facts are taught/learned, but the more important process for my students to master is the art of problem solving. We can only give them the tools, they must build the solution.
