Welcome to my 8th Grade Math and Algebra I class!
This is my lucky 13th year of teaching and my fourth year at Harry Hurst Middle School, the BEST middle school in the state! I am so excited to have the opportunity to teach your child and foster within them a growth mindset and a passion for lifelong learning. We will practice mindfulness, which has TREMENDOUS benefits, and practice grit, tenacity, and self-motivation as we progress in our learning and time together.
This year I will incorporate Google Classroom with our district provided Chromebooks. Google Classroom is a tool that allows me to post announcements and reminders for students. It also allows for class assignments and submissions to be to posted and collected digitally.
To access Google Classroom please use the following link https://classroom.google.com/ and have your child log into their Google account. Once logged in, you can review class announcements, assignments and course information. You can also view Google Docs from the “Google Classroom” link on the left side of the menu.
I know this year will be AMAZING. Thank you so much for the opportunity to teach your child. If you need anything at all, don't hesitate to contact me!
Please visit the following links for the LEAP Review Videos for both 8th Grade Math and Algebra I. If your child is in Algebra I, they will need to view BOTH videos, as they have to take BOTH LEAP tests this year.
