Mr. Commander

Welcome to the 2020-2021 school year! My name is John Commander and I teach math and computer science here at Oakcrest. I have been teaching at the Oak since 2010 and am very excited to start my eleventh year. This year I will be teaching three courses: Algebra 1, Honors Geometry, and AP Computer Science Principles. Use this website in union with my Google Classroom and Remind accounts to keep track of due dates for upcoming assignments, projects, and tests/quizzes. I look forward to keeping in touch with students and parents and making this a successful school year.

  • Welcome to the beginning of the 2020-2021 school year. My name is John Commander and I look forward to working with all of my students this year. Especially with the mix of virtual, hybrid, and in-person learning it is more important than ever to communicate and overcome obstacles that will arise. Please don't hesitate to contact me on our Google Classroom, via email at jcommander@gehrhsd.net, or by phone at 609-909-2600 EXT 5118. In addition, please review all course expectations outlined on the syllabus provided for our class.

Course Materials

  • Each student is expected to be prepared for class every day. To be considered prepared, you need a writing utensil, notebook/folder or binder, and any current assignments. Students also need to be ready to participate in activities, note-taking, or math discussion during each meeting.
