grade Mathematics / Math A.I.S Teacher for the 2020-21 school year. This is my 22nd year of teaching at MMS. We will be learning many new and exciting things. In my classes, students will be expected to think, communicate, and always be contributing. Everything I do will connect to the real world.
My hope is that we can work together to ensure that this year is successful for your child. I firmly believe that your child can receive the best education when you and I work together as a team.
As a teacher, I truly welcome your telephone calls and can be reached during working school hours at (845)236-5840 or by e-mail, anytime at firstname.lastname@example.org. Please don't hesitate to contact me should you have any questions. I also am available through my REMIND Classroom App. Please contact me for the code.MISSION FOR MY CLASSES
The mission in all my classes is to create an environment and atmosphere where all can learn. I believe in establishing communication with parents and the community, as well as continuing to encourage student growth and success that meet the Content Strands for the NYS Mathematics Assessment.
My goal is simple, to help every child meet their goal; to help students
become lifelong readers, writers, and learners.
Sixth-grade math is a transition year from reinforcing and building on basic
skills to entering the world of "unknowns." Problem solving skills are practiced and are applied to everyday situations. Accuracy and speed are stressed in computation. A key to success in mathematics is in having a strong foundation in study and organizational skills. Students
take notes on each lesson and recommendations are made regarding how to show work, check completed work, and how to study for assessments.
Together, with you, students can be apart of an environment where learning together is of utmost importance and in the end, where success is possible. I welcome you all and am looking forward to a very successful and productive year.
