About Me

My name is Mr. Peralta and I am a teacher at MS67 in Queens. This year I am teaching accelerated 6th grade math and 8th grade algebra. The students at MS67 are pretty great.

I was born and raised in Ohio. For college, I moved to D.C. and graduated from Georgetown University with a math degree. My goal as a teacher is for students to feel that math can be interesting. ¬†They don’t have to love math (but if they do, great). ¬†They just need to see that anyone can be good at math with enough effort and that mathematical thinking is a great way to approach all types of problems, even non-mathematical ones.

On a side note, here are my two cats.
