About me

Gender Male
Occupation Math Teacher
Location Ingoya (right now), South Portland Mostly, Originally from Farmington, ME and a Mt. Blue graduate, Mr. Frost teaches math at Thornton Academy.
Introduction Mr. Frost joined the faculty of Thornton Academy after teaching math, science, and music in Carrabassett Valley, ME for seven years. During his tenure in the western mountains of Maine, he spent summers putting his geometry skills to work as a carpenter, coaching Alpine Ski Racing and tutoring in New Zealand or Austria, or completing glacier and paleoclimate research in the High Norwegian Arctic (Svalbard). As a 2012 PolarTREC teacher he kept a daily online journal of his summer field season as a means to connect contemporary Arctic research to the high school classroom.
Interests He believes that the integration of mathematics into its applications in the STEM fields serves as a great way to see incredible connections from classroom material to the real world. Having spent a number of field seasons in the Canadian Arctic as a student and researcher at Bates College (’05), Mr. Frost has an affinity for the high north. On any given day you may be able to find him on his way to Alaska by plane or vehicle for climate research, working with teachers on bringing the Arctic to the classroom, or fishing for Sockeyes out of the Copper River.
