I graduated from Sam Houston State University in 2007 and have taught middle school math for 11 years. I have 3 children - a 14 year old son, 10 year old daughter, and a 3 year old baby girl. I am so excited about this upcoming year at Willow Wood and am looking forward to a wonderful school year! Please feel free to contact me anytime with questions or concerns, I am here to help!
My teaching philosophy is that ALL of my students will achieve at high levels and I will do whatever it takes to get them there! My mission is to provide a safe, positive learning environment where my students can experience learning through an adventure of discovery, enlightenment, engagement, and growth. Our curriculum is designed and implemented to meet the Texas Essential Knowledge Skills (TEKS) for 7th grade math.
MATH TUTORIALS - Tutorials will be Tuesday mornings at 7:15 am and Thursday mornings at 7:15 am. I encourage all of my students to attend tutorials anytime they feel they need extra help, extra practice, or extra time on assignments.
MAJOR GRADE RECOVERY POLICY -
Students will be given the opportunity to master the curriculum and to improve one major grade per grading period according to the following guidelines:
Each nine weeks, students will be given a grade recovery opportunity. This will be a cumulative nine weeks assessment, given at the end of the nine weeks. The grade earned on the grade recovery will replace a major grade, up to a 70. Students must request a time to complete the grade recovery assessment with their teacher.
