Brief Biography: Growing up, and especially in High School, Mr. Antonucci states that did not care much for Math. “I struggled with it and had a hard time understanding. It wasn’t until college, where I basically had to start over, that my love for math began. It was then that I began to understand math and wanted to pursue it further.”

He declared his major in mathematics at the University of Pittsburgh and earned his bachelor’s degree, then went on to graduate school at Pitt’s School of Education to study Secondary Mathematics Education. He has taught all levels of mathematics from 7th grade math up though Calculus II. He taught in a brick and mortar setting for 7 years and one other cyber school. “Now I enjoy helping students understand how math works because I know what it’s like to struggle with mathematical concepts. I really enjoy teaching in the cyber setting because of the freedoms and flexibility it offers our students.”
