Introduction/About Me

 Welcome to Mr. Turner's 7th and 8th grade Algebra/Geometry class!

This website is for you (Parents and Students). Please explore the website and become familiar with the pages. I will be posting important information throughout the year as well as homework assignments and upcoming tests on an attached Google Calendar.

A little about myself, I am a proud graduate of Texas Tech University. Wreck'em Tech!  Originally, I was in the Oil and Gas industry and decided to make a change in 2008 to education.  It was the best decision I have ever made.
 
The homework will be posted through Google Classroom as well as some videos that will help at home.  Your child will have homework everyday
 
If you would like to help your child with their homework and need assistance, check the "HELP!!!" section.
 
My conference period is 4th period and would be happy to meet with you.  I do ask that you set an appointment with me through email 24 hours in advance and let me know what your concerns are prior to the meeting.  This way, I can be prepared and your time will not be wasted.  Please feel free to e-mail me anytime during the work week. My goal is to return all emails within 24 hours Monday through Thursday.  joshturner@tomballisd.net  My e-mail is NOT connected to my phone or home device.
 
I am technology oriented and will require the use of technology inside and outside of my classroom.  Please allow your child to use technology at home.  The main sources will be Google Classroom, Google Suite, Smart Board, and YouTube.  I will give instructions on which sites are approved for which projects.  
 
Tutorials are held on Monday and Tuesday BEFORE school from 7:15 AM -7:30 AM.
