    Welcome Message
     
    I am very excited about this upcoming year with the 7/8 Team!  Our team of teachers are planning many projects and interdisciplinary assignments for our advance learners!
     
    I have been teaching at Henry County Middle School since 2014.  I have taught 6, 7, and 8 grade level mathematics, 6th grade Earth Science, and 7th Grade Life Science.  I am the Gifted Coordinator for McDonough Middle School and want to ensure all levels of learners are provided rigorous and challenging learning environments.  My purpose is to inspire and to challenge individuals to seek and achieve their greatest potential!  Our 7/8 Team of teachers is committed to providing the best for each learner.
     
    HS Algebra I
     

    I am excited about teaching HS Algebra I this year.  My passion for teaching and for mathematics fuels my creation of a challenging and positive learning environment for our advance learners wishing to secure a High School math credit in their 8th grade at McDonough Middle School.  

     

    Advance Math 7/8

    The students in this class have completed their 6th grade and 1/2 of their 7th grade curriculum last year.  This year we will be completing the 7th grade standards as well as to complete the 8th grade standards.  This will prepare them for the High School Algebra I class next year in 8th grade. 

     

    8th Grade Mathematics

    8th Grade Mathematics is the culmination of all middle school math curriculum in preparation for high school courses.  I enjoy preparing students mathematically for high school levels of learning.  It is important for Middle School students to connect math with real world applications.  

     

     

    Middle school math is very important for students as it prepares them for high school courses of Coordinate Algebra, Analytical Geometry, and other Applied Mathematic courses.  I look forward to providing and facilitating a safe, rigorous, and challenging personalized learning environment for your students.  They will experience activities and projects using their problem solving, critical thinking, and analysis skills.
