Joe Busch will teach AP Statistics, Advanced Honors Seminar in Math and Algebra 2 with Analysis this year.
Born in New Jersey and raised in Connecticut, Busch went to college in Boston and got a master’s degree from NYU. He then moved to Los Angeles, where he received a fellowship to study mathematical logic at University of California at Los Angeles and earned his PhD.
Busch also has experience at internet-based companies such as Monster.com and Lycos, where he worked before beginning his teaching career.
He is especially excited about Harvard-Westlake’s collaborative math department and motivated students.
“Mathematics is very elegant and beautiful and full of surprises, and I really enjoy working with students and having them see this side of mathematics,” Busch said.
