Hey, my name’s Noah, and I’m a recently-licensed mathematics teacher living in St. Paul.
I think humor and fun are the best ways to learn. Some of my idols growing up were Jon Stewart and Zhuangzi – people who could make you laugh while also pointing things out to broaden your perspective. I really wanted an education blog that could do just that – provoke both laughter and insight. When the COVID-19 pandemic closed the schools, creating a surplus of “me time”, I finally took the plunge and started ProvocaTeach.
