To make homework more effective for both the students and myself, we will start having weekly math check points. The packet will still be due on the day of the test, but every Friday I will look over 3 out of the 4 pages that should be completed. A few of the problems that show that deepest understanding will be graded for correctness. This will help make sure that the homework is successfully working to cement the skills learned in class, and will also provide another way to check understanding. These weekly check points will also help make sure students are on a successful schedule to complete the packet. Please make sure to have our students bring in their packets every Friday.
I'm excited to begin my 7th year teaching at Coonley School. I've been teaching for over 20 years. I love creating projects and lessons that challenge my students.
