Is the Math teachers of (Forrest Bird Charter School) FBCS the new defense against the dark arts the new position? Well it just might be. The school has had 15 different math teacher in six year and 9 of those have taught high school math. Why does this happen? Well the FBCS is different. We are mostly a technology based school. Every student has a Computer that they carry around and most of the work is done on canvas. Teachers put most of assignment on canvas (Canvas only been around for 3 years so some of the teacher did not use Canvas). This can be hard for a new teacher because it could make them mad or they could not get how to use canvas for anything that is important for the FBCS. Mrs. Goodwin said about “I think that the teacher just need to get use to the school and the way it works and the town of Sandpoint”, Mrs. Holland said this about the same topic “I am not able to comment on that. I am very happy to be part of the math department now that I am a teacher at FBCS”.

The 9 of the 15 teacher that work in the High School were/are Stephen Finicle, Hemu Achanja, Gloria Hanson, Vicki Downing, Darlene QuirinMai, Jess Logan, Angie Goodwin, Lyndsay Holland, and Krysten Harrison. Four of those people still work here, Mrs. QuirinMai, Mrs. Goodwin, Mrs. Holland and Krysten Harrison. This trimester Mrs. QuirinMai is doing online Personal Finance, Mrs. Goodwin is at the school every day, Krysten Harrison has gone back to teaching 8th grade math and Mrs. Holland is here only on Monday, Wednesday and half of Friday. This is like Harry Potter books. Hogwarts School went through 7 teacher in 7 years. Hogwarts went through several be Quirinus Quirrell, Gilderoy Lockhart, Remus Lupin, Bartemius Crouch Jr., Dolores Umbridge, Severus Snape, Amycus Carrow. There is only one person that as not died in these books that is Carrow and everyone else died or run off.
