‘I Saw a Mouse’ featuring Simon MacFarlane and Tiffany McGrew, performing at BMS.

Mr. Simon MacFarlane started with Bixby Public Schools a few years back as a math teacher splitting time between buildings.   He worked with kids in our building then traveled to the Ninth Grade Center to teach freshmen.  His unique style grabbed the attention of his students as he tried to prepare them for not only the challenges of subject but the road ahead in life.   As luck would have it, a full-time position opened up here at BMS and we were lucky enough to snag him full-time.   Since then, we have enjoyed seeing Mr. MacFarlane perform with our house band, I Saw A Mouse, dress up like a pirate, rockstar, cowboy, etc.  He has sponsored Cube Club, an after-school Middle School club where students tackle the challenges of solving a multitude of Rubic’s Cubes.  And, he has also been know to rap math the math lessons for his classes!  “I believe you can reach and teach kids in a variety of ways. I just want try as many ways as possible to get my students to be high achievers”, stated Mr. MacFarlane about his teaching style.  We here at BMS certainly enjoy Mr. MacFarlane’s classroom approach to education and look forward to his next wacky event.   We wouldn’t  be a bit surprised to see a future Bixby High School graduate make it big and credit Simon MacFarlane’s classroom antics for the reason they had a great school experience.  Keep it up Simon! You are much appreciated!
