Mr. Babler has been teaching high school math since 1993 and has been at Niles High School since 1998. He has taught every level of high school math, from pre-algebra through AP calculus. In addition to teaching math, Mr. Babler taught journalism for several years, coached boys varsity tennis and coached academic challenge for several years, as well. He is presently the Performing Arts Center director, a position he has held since 2005.
Mr. Babler is the 1989 salutatorian of Edwardsburg High School, and a 1993 graduate of the University of Toledo, where he earned his Bachelor's degree in Mathematics Education with an honors college citation. He also holds a Master's degree in Educational Technology from Western Michigan University.
Mr. Babler and his wife Elizabeth have eight children (Owen, Riley, Ethan, Audrey, Elias, Lily, Donna, and Anne), which take up most of his spare time. He enjoys watching movies with them, as well as camping, going for nature walks, to the beach and to amusement parks.
Mr. Babler enjoys being a Viking, especially when beating his alma mater. He enjoys the variety that comes with trying to teach 100+ students mathematics daily, as well as running a 1200-seat auditorium with his student stage crew. There is rarely a dull moment. He considers it an honor, privelege, and a joy to be teaching your students this challenging topic that gets used in life more than most people recognize.
