Welcome to Math Class with Mrs. McNamara (a.k.a Mrs. MathNamara)
Welcome to Middle School! I hope that you had an enjoyable and restful summer. I am thrilled to be your math teacher and I am looking forward to a fun and exciting year.
I know that math may be challenging for some of you, but I believe that all of you can be successful mathematicians. I also believe that students rise to a challenge. Challenges are beneficial and lead to great learning experiences. As my students you can be expected to be challenged and encouraged to take your math skills to a higher level.
I expect that you will come prepared for every class. You should bring your binder, powerbook, pencil and a willingness to learn. Throughour the year, we will be working with partners and in groups. I expect that you will listen to your classmates, be courteous and treat everyone with respect. Most importantly, I expect that you will always try your best and never give up.
My goal is that you all find success in math. If there is something that you do not understand during class or while doing your homework, please ask questions or schedule time with me so that we can work together. I have Study Hall every day during Block 6 (Second Lunch) and Tutorial every day during Block 7 (Third Lunch). I eas my lunch during Block 5 (First Lunch) and I could work with students during this time also. Please see me for a pass if you plan to come work with me. If you would like to work with me after school, please talk to me ahead of time so that we can set up a time that works for both of us.
If you have any questions or concerns, please feel free to contact me.
