This is a busy week! We have our first girls' volleyball game this week for A team. I can't wait for our ladies to hit the court on Tuesday. In addition to that, parent/teacher conferences start on Wednesday night. Please come to conferences with your child so we can talk about the start to the year they have had. See you all soon, but I will leave you with a thought to ponder.
As September ends, so does chapter 1 in our math series. This week 6th, 7th, & 8th graders are preparing for their first math test of the year. The students have reviewed in class & are aware of on-line resources available to them to study. Good luck to all!
As suggested at last night's meeting, there is now a link to the Mathematical Practices for teaching the Common Core State Standards. Happy Reading!!
Thank you to those who attended the informational meeting for the middle school last night. I hope we answered your questions and made you feel more comfortable about the middle school experience.
It is amazing to me that I am in my 13th year of
teaching at Washington School. Most of my years at Washington were spent
teaching mathematics in the middle school. Although trends in education may
change, math surely doesn't. I love teaching math. I enjoy finding patterns,
solving puzzles, and connecting the world the students live in to the world of
mathematics. I grew up in Connecticut, spent some time in California and settle
here in Wisconsin in 1998. I graduated from Central Connecticut State University
with BA in Educational Studies with a Math, Science and Geography major. I also
graduated from National Louis University with my Masters in Curriculum and
Instruction. I have a son, Luke who attends Waterford Union
