Welcome to the 6th grade and the 2016-2017 school year at Beverly Vista. I am excited to be part of the Bulldog Family! This is my 9th year teaching middle school math. I previously taught middle school math for 6 years at New West Charter in West Los Angeles. 
 
Over the years I have taught Pre-Algebra, Algebra I and Geometry.  I am looking forward to working with you to ensure your child’s success in Math 6. The goal of this course is to provide your child a balanced and coherent curriculum of conceptual understanding, problem solving and skill development.
 
 

Announcements

 


Homework 
  • Homework is given daily (Monday-Friday) Quizzes & Tests will also be given regularly.

    Absences: Students are encouraged to be in school regularly. We cover many standards in 6th grade Math that all build upon each other. Being present and willing to do the work ensures success. If a student does have to miss school, they are still responsible for the material. It is the student’s responsibility to pick up any class work or homework missed. It is also the student’s responsibility to make arrangements to make up any missed quizzes or tests.


Absences 
  • One Day given to make up work for each day absent. It is the student’s responsibility to find out what they missed and catch up. 
  • Attendance: Students are encouraged to be in school regularly.  We cover many standards with 6th grade Common Core that all build upon each other.  Being present and willing to do the work ensures success.  
  • If a student does have to miss school, they are still responsible for the material. It is the student’s responsibility to pick up any class work or homework missed.  It is also the student’s responsibility to make arrangements to make up any missed quizzes or exams. Students must meet with me to arrange a date/time to take a missed quiz or exam within 2 days of their return to school. Failure to do so will result in "0" being entered into the grade book and will not be guaranteed the opportunity to take the quiz or exam for a grade.
