Mathematics Teacher

David Radford
BSc in Applied Mathematics

I was born and raised in Canton, Ohio. A small city with a rich history of American football. I spent all of my time in elementary, middle, and high school in Canton and later moved to Toledo, Ohio for college. I was fortunate enough to have a family who supported all of my endeavors growing up, from going to a local art school to extracurriculars such as tennis and chess. It was during high school, taking classes like geometry and calculus, where I discovered my passion for math.

I received my Bachelors of Science in Mathematics with a concentration in applied math from the University of Toledo. Over the course of my studies, I explored areas such as research and business, but after working as a math tutor I realized I wanted to become a teacher.

Outside of the numbers, I try to keep my mind active in other ways. I’ve recently started studying chess again and would like surpass my ranking from when I was 17 years old. I also enjoy sketching, whether it be popular cartoons or more realistic subjects.
