Hello and welcome to the 2018—2019 school year. I would like your child to have the best education possible. I look forward to your help making this happen. Communication between parents, students and teachers is key to maximizing your child’s education. I look forward to working with you and your child to ensure continuing academic success.
To help with that communication, please check out the Infinite Campus Portal for up to date information about your child's performance at Park. You can expect me to keep the information in the gradebook up to date, usually daily. Additionally, all my expectations and policies are posted here for your reference throughout the year. If you have any questions or concerns, please feel free to contact me via phone or email (see below) at any time. I will respond as quickly as I can.
I believe everyone can, and should, learn mathematics. I feel mathematics is more about the thought processes and reasoning, which occurs while solving problems rather than just getting the right answers. Math is also about thinking about what the answer represents and expressing that answer as a solution to real world problems. I also believe the ability to communicate mathematically is as important a skill as being able to do the mathematics itself.
