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 Pre-Algebra and Geometry at Eisenhower High School.


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


My grading policy is as follows: 52% for CUAs, 16% for quizzes, 12% for homework, and 20% for the final exam.  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.  I also strongly encourage students to attend Saturday school, utilize the Cool Place, and after school homework help.  I strongly believe that education is a means to create a better future.


My schedule this year is as follows:

Period 1- Pre-Algebra in room 328

Period 2- PLP (office or room 311)

Period 3- Geometry in room 330

Period 4- Lunch

Period 5- Pre-Algebra in room 328

Period 6- Geometry in room 330
