My Education & Teaching Background

 
I have a B.S. Degree in Interdisplinary Studies with a specialization in mathematics from Angelo State University. This is my 13th year teaching math and 9th year at Benold Middle School. 
 

Class/Course Information

 This year your child is enrolled in a mathematics program rich in many topics of mathematics. He/she will study:
• numbers and operations
• patterns, functions, and algebra
• geometry and spatial sense
• measurement
• data analysis, statistics, and probability

This program is designed to provide a strong foundation for future mathematics courses and to help students develop the content and problem solving skills needed for success in future years in the Georgetown school system, college, careers, and daily life in the 21st century. The Georgetown Mathematics Curriculum helps students develop their abilities to:

• Explore and solve mathematical problems
• Think and reason critically
• Work cooperatively with others
• Communicate ideas clearly
• See how mathematics connects to other curricular areas and daily life
• Model mathematics using different representations

Why are these abilities important? Colleges are asking for students who bring more than memorized rules and facts to their college studies. They are asking for students who will explore and challenge ideas. Business and industry are looking for employees who can think critically and work cooperatively with others. The success of our society in the 21st century depends on having young people who can make and communicate informed decisions about issues that require quantitative reasoning. The Georgetown mathematics department has a kindergarten through high school mathematics curriculum that prepares your child for these challenges.

What can you as a parent do to help your child?
Make sure your child attends class on a regular basis. Missing class in a sequential class like mathematics can cause your student to miss concepts that will be difficult to learn later. If your child must miss school, insist that your child make-up the work. Remember, however, making up work does not necessarily take the place of the missed classroom time.
• Encourage your child to participate positively in classroom discussions. Student communication gives feedback to both the teacher and the student.
• Insist your child set a standard of correct behavior and respect in all classrooms. Poor behavior prevents all children from learning.
• Actively participate in your child’s learning. Check to see if homework is done, encourage your child to read the section in the book if concepts are confusing, ask questions of your child regarding mathematics, assist your child in organizing the work, and play math games with your child.
• NEVER tell your child, “I wasn’t any good at math”. Would you tell your child you weren’t any good at reading?! Learn together.
• Encourage your child to ask for assistance from the math teacher, if he/she is struggling mathematically.
• Work with the classroom teacher to see that your child gets the best possible mathematics education. Mathematics is the language of the universe!
