Welcome to sixth grade! I am very excited to be your child’s Math teacher this year. It is going to be a great year of learning and making new friends. The following information will greatly assist you and your child in reaching the goal of having a very successful year.

I am available for after school tutorials three times a week, Monday Tuesday and Wednesday from 3:30 to 4:00 pm, except when I have after school duty. All students will be provided with an after school pass.

Students who are absent are responsible for getting the work they missed. Absent work must be submitted in a timely manner. Please refer to the UISD Student Handbook under Homework Policy.
Students who miss a test or quiz due to an absence must see me to reschedule test or quiz. Please refer to the UISD Student Handbook for the Assessment Policy. Assessments will be administered on Fridays.
Homework is an essential aspect of learning and will be assigned Monday thru Thursday. Your child should expect to spend between 15 and 30 minutes on each assignment. If your child misses class (due to illness, doctor appt. etc.) he or she is responsible for making up the assigned homework, as well as any activities from class that day. Check my website daily to view which assignments need to be completed.
Your child will be issued a HOMEWORK FOLDER by his/her reading teacher. This folder will be used to store their daily homework assignments.
