Degrees and Certifications:

Mr. Brian McKenzie

This is my 11th year teaching math at Traughber Jr High. I attended Augustana College, in Rock Island, IL, and graduated with a major in mathematics and physics in 2002.  I also have a master’s degree in teaching from National Louis University, Chicago. I have taught sixth, seventh, and eighth grade math during my career, but I have taught primarily sixth grade math for the last six years.   

My wife Michele teaches 4th grade at Lakewood Creek Elementary School.  We have three children, a daughter Leah who is going into 3rd grade and twins, Owen and Kate, who are 2 1/2 years old.  

Visit to see all of my resources and materials.  I've listed the supplies they will need for math this year there.  I also have a homework calendar and links to the materials students will be using this year.
