John Schmerker

I have been teaching at Plano West since 2011 and teaching overall since 1997.  I currently teach Statistics and AP Statistics at Plano West.  I am the team leader for AP Statistics and am part of the curriculum writing team for both statistics courses.  In addition to teaching I write curriculum and do consulting work for NMSI, as well as participate in the AP reading for AP Statistics.  

I am originally from SugarLand, TX and went to The University of Texas at Austin where I studied education with a math minor.  I have taught at Wilson, Haggard, Jasper, Plano West and also in Cherry Creek and Douglas County Schools in suburban Denver.  

I enjoy playing and watching sports, hanging out with my family, traveling and long walks on the beach.
