Jim Albers is starting his tenth year teaching sixth grade math and world geography at CWA, bringing to the classroom a global perspective shaped by living and working in India and Oman. Jim taught at the American Embassy School in New Delhi for four years and at the American International School of Muscat for two years. He uses his own experiences to help students develop an appreciation of the world and a sense of their responsibility to it. “I enjoy the liberal arts private school setting because I have the freedom to teach without the restraints of teaching to a particular test, allowing for more creativity in the classroom and enriching students learning across a variety of content areas,” he says.

Jim also coaches cross-country, track, and the robotics program, which won state in 2016 and traveled to California to compete in the Western Regional FTC Tournament. A few interesting facts about Jim:

  • He shook hands with President Bill Clinton and Secretary of State Madeline Albright on their visit to India.
  • He is also a certified scuba diver and has tried skydiving, but only once because he doesn’t plan to test his luck again with that sport.
  • His daughter, Madisan (10th grade), and son, Joshua (6th grade), attend CWA.

Family, the beach, outdoors, a book, decaf coffee, running, and traveling about sums him up!
