Mr. Michael Lacey
Welcome to my class. This is my thirty-fourth year teaching and twelfth year at J.B. Martin Middle School. I am a National Board Certified Teacher. I am looking forward to teaching your child math, helping them to become fluent, precise, and confident in their work. I have taught in both private and public schools around the New Orleans area. I hold lifetime teaching certificates in Texas and in Louisiana. I continue to attend workshops to refine my teaching methods.
The Advanced Math Course follows the majority of regular Seventh Grade Curriculum during the fall semester. The fall semester covers the Major Content of Grade 7 skills tested on LEAP. During the Spring semester, the pace starts to pick up as we finish the Grade 7 curriculum during Quarter 3 and teach three modules of Grade 8. Students must earn a B average in this course in order to qualify for Algebra I course in Eighth grade.
My Teaching Schedule:
Period 1: Seventh Grade Advanced Math
Period 2: Seventh Grade Advanced Math
Period 3: Planning
Period 4: Seventh Grade Advanced Math
Period 5: Seventh Grade Advanced Math
Period 6: Seventh Grade Advanced Math
