Mr. Fey graduated from Grand Valley State University in 2009 with a Bachelor of Science degree in Mathematics with a minor in Psychology where he was consistently showcased on the Dean’s List. While at GVSU, Mr. Fey was active in the theatre department and in music outside of the academic setting.
During his senior year, Mr. Fey designed and conducted an HRRC approved questionnaire and analysis on mathematics education and the kinds of culture and expectations that produce high achievement in the classroom. The results of this study have molded his views on education as both a partnership and an adoption of responsibility – high expectations lead to achievement if proper motivation and genuine caring are present.
Being hired onto the faculty at West Michigan Aviation Academy in 2010 has been an honor and an exciting journey from the “one-room schoolhouse” to the impressive facility, staff, and student body that WMAA showcases every day.
