Welcome to 7th grade advanced math and algebra!!! This is my second year at Montford. Math is a wonderful tool that can enrich your life in many ways. Having taught at the high school level, I know the importance of mastering fondational math skills taught in 7th grade math cirriculum and in Algebra. Success in these classes will lay a strong foundation for future math classes.
I promote a positive classroom environment where it is safe to learn. Learning means making mistakes, learning from our mistakes and the mistakes of others helps us all to become better mathematicians. Math can be difficult, but a positive attitude along with being kind and encouraging to your peers will make the journey easier and more enjoyable for everyone.
I believe that communication is extremely important part of the educational process. I encourage parents to communicate with me whether it is email, phone call, or a conference. The quickest way to reach me is through email. I will try my best to keep you posted weekly on progress of the class and ways at home that can help reinforce concepts. This will be done through my school web page and through Focus.
I am looking forward to working with you this year. If you have any questions, comments or concerns please do not hesitate to contact me.
