Love of math, impacting kids motivates Cooley’s Geyer
By Trevor Godfrey
Tera Geyer, eighth grade math teacher at Cooley Middle School, has spent the last 11 years teaching children, but she has loved mathematics since childhood.
Born and raised in Southern New Mexico, she has lived in Arizona for 16 years and taught for the Higley Unified School District for the last nine years.
“Math was always one of my strong suits, all the way through school,” says Geyer.
Her love of math, inspiration from her own former teachers and her mother — also a career teacher — eventually brought her around to the profession.
“(M)y mom was a teacher, and so I spent every open Friday working in (her) classroom. I just knew I had to teach,” she says.
Geyer values the impact she can have on her students.
“I think it’s when the kids come back, and they say, ‘You made a difference in my life,’” Geyer says, referring to her favorite moments as a teacher.
She also says patience is key, and making personal connections is important.
“If they know that you care, they will do anything for you,” Geyer says. “I’m just lucky to work here at Cooley. It’s a great school.”
