BELVIDERE (WREX) – A Belvidere Central Middle School teacher is known by the students as the math teacher that knows how to crack a joke.
One of his 7th grade students, Nick Schroeder, said his math teacher Chad McLarty keeps the class entertained while learning algebra.
“He’s really funny, he never leaves you hanging in math,” Schroeder said. “He makes algebra really make sense, which is really difficult to do, and I never leave that classroom without laughing at least twice.”
One of McLarty’s fellow coworker said he thinks McLarty’s energy in the classroom comes from his past as a PE teacher, and that energy helps his students get comfortable with the curriculum.
