Ms. Dinges Teacher Profile

photo 2 (4)Nancy Dinges is originally from San Mateo, but she went to Hillsdale High School. She was on the basketball team in high school and this carried into her life here at SMHS because she helps coach our basketball team.

Ms. Dinges is an integrated math, and algebra 1 teacher here at San Mateo High School. She has had a rewarding career by helping kids realize that math is interesting and useful in the real world.

“If you work hard enough, you can achieve your dreams,” says Ms. Dinges.

Ms. Dinges studied at the University of the Pacific in Stockton, CA from 2000 to 2004. She majored in math education. When she graduated Ms. Dinges didn’t know what she wanted to do, but she knew she didn’t want to be a math teacher.

She got an office job in Orange County for a litigation service. The job was boring and not challenging for her, so in 2005, she decided to go back to school and get a credential at San Francisco State to see if she liked teaching.

“I want to give kids a view of where education can lead you,” says Ms. Dinges.

Ms. Dinges began her teaching career in 2006 in Paso Robles. In 2007, she worked at Burrell Middle School. Finally in 2008 she came to San Mateo High School. Ms. Dinges wants to change students’ perspectives about math. She wants to give kids the opportunity to see that math is fun and challenging and can be applied to the real world.
