Bio:

Steve and his wife, Kathy, first came to Hillcrest in 1994 when he accepted the position of band director and Kathy began teaching in the English department. Steve was raised in South St. Paul, MN and later attended Winona State University earning a degree in Business with a Math minor. He then attended the University of Nebraska in Lincoln where he pursued a Master of Music degree in preparation for a career as a band director. IHe was directly involved in a teaching role during this time through a graduate assistantship in the music department. Me was married in 1993, and he and his wife were blessed to be able to start teaching together at Hillcrest the following year. Their two sons attended Hillcrest from grades 7-12.

I believe that all students can be successful in this area of study. God has revealed Himself to us in many ways, and the language of mathematics can best be understood as we start with the understanding that His created order guides what we see and experience all around us. From the simplest mathematical expression to complex geometric figures, God’s creative touch can be seen in all of these concepts.

For the next 20 years, Steve’s primary teaching role centered around the music department but he’s also been involved in additional subject areas including Algebra 1, Algebra 2, Calculus, Personal Finance, Computer Programming, and Computer Applications among others. These experiences have allowed him to continue developing his  lifelong interests in the areas of math and technology, and I he’s  enjoyed getting to know a broader segment of the student body through these courses.

Mr. Doering’s current full-time teaching role in the mathematics department is the culmination of his teaching experience in both music and math through his years at Hillcrest. His current work is a series of connected courses in mathematics including Pre-Algebra, Algebra 1, Geometry, and Algebra 2. He also teaches a College Algebra course along with Computer Applications.

Steve is excited to work with Hillcrest students as they experience the depth and order of God’s creation as demonstrated through mathematics, and he believes that all students can be successful in this area of study.
