Hi and thanks for visiting. I’m Mark Noldy, or that guy Mark. I’m a regular guy living with an attitude of gratitude. My interests are varied. I’m not exactly a polymath. That is, I’m no da Vinci. But I do consider myself a multipotentialite, probably closer to the simultaneous end of the spectrum that the sequential end.
I am thankful to have the experience of teaching math in a small rural high school. As a result, I often teach multiple subjects like MS Office, Calculus, Statistics, Algebra, Personal Finance, and Principles of Accounting all in the same day! Teacher guy Mark has become accustomed to switching gears. Also, check out my first ever web site, Planet Numeracy.™
And with four daughters (each with their own areas of interest), family guy Mark is also fortunate to be a fan (if not quasi-expert) in volleyball, basketball, swimming, cheerleading, and track & field. I actually coached the Varsity swim for 9 seasons at my school. And I run the basketball clock for boys’ home games.
Whichever hat I’m wearing on any given day at any given hour — Teacher guy Mark… Blogger guy Mark… Author guy Mark… Money guy Mark… Fitness guy Mark… Biker guy Mark… — I count myself as fortunate to be alive in America with the freedom to pursue any and all of these interests. I am living the portfolio life.
Something interesting about me…
- I am an outstanding poker player (statistical acumen and all),
- I love “old school” cartoons like Scooby Doo,
- I am a wine and craft beer officionado, and
- I read the scriptures daily.
