    Meet Mr. Palmer!

    Mr. Palmer grew up not too far from Decatur, on the North Side of Springfield. He graduated from Lanphier High School. Then, he went to Illinois College in Jacksonville. Now, he is in his fourth year teaching math here at Eisenhower High School. GO PANTHERS!!!

    Throughout his childhood, Mr. Palmer played baseball and has always been a big fan of the Chicago Cubs. He also started playing the drums in 5th grade and has continued to this day!

    Believe it or not, Mr. Palmer did not like math growing up. However, once he got to high school, he learned that it is okay to make mistakes and be frustrated, as long as you keep going! He started doing better in math when he began persisting and viewing his mistakes as opportunities to learn!!!
