Dwight D. Eisenhower High School

Mr. A. Katz

I began my post-secondary education at the University of Illinois.  Later, I attended several different universities to further sharpen my teaching skills: Western State Colorado University, Governors State University, and Concordia University in Chicago.  I am currently debating what to enroll in next.


My teaching career has spanned multiple cities, demographics, and subjects.  I began in Colorado focusing on high school English and Mathematics.  The next leg in my journey took me to Chicago Public Schools where I focused on various levels of Mathematics.  Finally, I landed in district 218 where I now teach Algebra, Geometry and Applied Math at Eisenhower High School.


I am currently involved in football, LTAB (Louder Than A Bomb), and Technology Club.


My grading policy is as follows: 65% for CUAs, 20% for quizzes, and 15% for homework.  The Final Exam is worth 20% of the overall grade.  I strongly encourage retakes and corrections.  If you have an issue with your grade, or a grade on an assessment, please come by and we can discuss ways for you to earn back points.
