Mrs. Madeline Putterman is a new math teacher at North Penn High School. Her high energy classes excite students every single day.

When students walk into her classroom, they notice an aura of excitement oozing from Mrs. Madeline Putterman, a new teacher at North Penn High School. Putterman, a graduate of Cheltenham High school, is one of the newest math teachers in E-Pod. Putterman went to Penn State University, where she got her Bachelor’s degree in Secondary Math.

“I used to be a math teacher in Central Bucks School District before I started teaching here,” Putterman said.

It is Putterman’s second year teaching, but her first year at North Penn. She was hired during the summer of 2021. So far, she’s felt a warm welcome from our school and has been getting used to a new normal since last year. The last year certainly has challenged Putterman, but she is staying strong and figuring out how to navigate her newest teaching position.

No two days are the same on the job. From the content that I’m teaching, to what’s going on in the world, to what’s unfolding in my classroom, it’s all different. I get to work with great colleagues who support me in more ways than you could possibly imagine.”

“No two days are the same on the job. From the content that I’m teaching, to what’s going on in the world, to what’s unfolding in my classroom, it’s all different. I get to work with great colleagues who support me in more ways than you could possibly imagine,” Putterman stated.

She regards her new surroundings with a smile, impressed with the diversity of the district. Her students come into class every day with energy and questions ready to learn, which is one of the reasons she loves teaching. She’s also happy to be teaching math specifically, a great passion of hers.

“Math is everywhere, and it is often a subject that people don’t like, but I believe it’s for everyone. It’s always going to be relevant, it’s relevancy will change as the world changes, but it’s always something we can apply,” Putterman said.

It’s not just about how math is everywhere. Putterman’s family is also filled with teachers, inspiring her to pursue her career. As Putterman becomes more accustomed to her novel surroundings, she continues to exert her love of mathematics onto her students. She’s also excited and looking forward to the upcoming school years.

“I love seeing those lightbulb moments, when students connect the dots and learn something new.”
