Outreach Manager in Winnipeg

Peter Andres
Peter has followed a passion for coaching into a career in education. As a math teacher, Peter has experience at every grade level from K-12. In students and for himself, Peter has seen how small achievements lead into confidence and a greater desire for more success. He is not afraid to take chances or try new things - bungee jumping and learning to play guitar are a few most recent examples! But just don’t get him started on stories of championship teams or on his golf game. As a father of three, he understands the need for patience. As a coach, he values the need for practice. As a teacher, he is a great encourager that shares in the joy of his students as they step into greater things. As a part of the JUMP Math team, Peter is working with teachers as they continue at building up their students toward greater success. His favourite number is 13, because it as a prime number with nothing unlucky about it. Contact Peter.
