Teaching approach:

Mr. Heinricks believes that one of the most important skills in life is setting goals and knowing how to achieve them.

If a student fails to understand one way of looking at a unit, Mr. Heinricks finds a different way that will work.

Outstanding achievements:

Heinricks makes himself available to his students by arriving at school early in the morning, spending his lunch break in class, and giving his home phone number should students require help in the evenings. He initiated Math Club for students who were dropping by his classroom and doing fun math activities on their own. He also initiated "Math Night" to prepare students for the departmental exam.

Mr. Heinricks has his students set realistic but challenging goals at the beginning of each semester, and they discuss what it will take to achieve these goals. Each student signs their goals and Heinricks follows up during the semester.
