7th Grade Teacher - Math and Science

Room F206


     Hello Parents and Students,

      I’m delighted to be a part of the 7th grade Math and Science team for the 2019-2020 academic school year.  I currently hold a California K-8 Multiple Subject Teaching Credential. Furthermore, I bring over 18 years of teaching experience to the classroom.    

     This year, our class will continue to support a focus towards the California Common Core Standards with an ongoing goal of preparing students for 21st century colleges and careers. With the use of currently adopted textbooks and academic materials, you may expect your child to receive instruction that not only teaches Math and Science skills, but also encourages young minds to research academically, think critically, communicate successfully, and collaborate effectively.

      In Math, students will be participating in Ready and iReady Math curriculum. Students will be learning mathematical concepts and skills, engaging in problem solving strategies, but also learning to provide and communicate reasoning both verbally and in written form.

      In Science, we continue with transition towards a new Science curriculum, students will be participating in STEMscopes, an online Science curriculum that integrates Life, Physical and Earth Sciences.

      Grades will be determined by a student’s overall classroom experience.  An average of scores received for chapters tests, quizzes, class projects, homework completion, as well as class participation will determine a student’s academic grade. I  hope to provide a well-balanced academic program as well as support students in feeling the least amount of anxiety.

     Students will receive homework consistently approximately 3 nights per week. Please know that preparing for a test and working on projects will be an important part of homework as well. This includes nightly reading of non fiction reading. Please be advised that all grades will be posted on Parent Portal.

     It is my sincere hope and personal interest that all students have a rewarding academic year. If you have any questions, please contact me at  Looking  forward to the beginning of a fantastic school year!
