Hello! Welcome to my classroom!
I am the math teacher for 6th grade at White Plains Middle School.
Some general information....
We are a standards-based grading school:
Some basics: Your child will be graded on specific content and will know what content was not mastered. Your child will have the opportunity to go back and master it, by staying on Wednesday night to make up work and by re-learning the material in order to retake a test.
Work Skills Grade: This is where points could be taken off due to non-content factors. Some of the situations that will cause points to be taken off include: not being prepared for class, not having work done, and not being able to work in a group. This is a separate, report card grade. This grade could keep your child off of the honor roll.

We are in this together! Mom, dad, guardian, student, and teacher!
Please help your student be the best they can be by offering your input, help, and attention. Please contact me if you are experiencing any difficulty that may impact your child's performance in school.
Math homework will only be given when we are studying for a test. I use Khan Academy online. Links will be on this site with every month's concepts. Just click the link and you will be able to watch a video and try out some practice problems.
Let's make sure each child experiences success this year! All year!
