My Home Page
Welcome to my classroom website!
There are many areas to the website that I know you will find great value in. My goal is to make the website not just a tool for me, as the teacher, to connect with parents, but also a learning tool and resource for the students.
My caseload this year:
Resource Room 8
We work on reading comprehension skills, editing writing for mistakes, writing solid paragraphs and then essays, solving math word problems, studying for tests, working on projects, and getting some homework done.
Consultant Classes in ELA 8, Math 8
I work with the classroom teachers to make sure all students have the opportunity to be successful. We take turns being "up front" teaching many days so students see both of us as the "teacher." I also help them analyze the good and bad parts of lessons, make review games for them, and make modifications for students that need them.
SC Algebra II
Our goal is to pass the Common Core Algebra exam at the end of the year. We will focus on using the graphing calculator and getting a lot of practice answering test questions.
SC Math 7/8
Our goal is to explore pre-algebra concepts at a slower pace and incorporate the mathematical practices.
