Welcome to Carlton's 6th Grade Mathematics,
I am thrilled to begin my 15th year of teaching. Over the last 14 years, I have had the privilege of teaching a variety of subjects and grade levels in this district. This is my 4th year at VMS teaching. In addition, I taught at Dakota Hills Middle School as a 7th and 8th grade mathematics teacher and a 6th grade reading and English teacher, and at Parkview Elementary School as a 5th grade teacher. I am excited to begin a new adventure at VMS and to meet and get to know my new students.
In regards to my life outside of school, I am married to wonderful man whose name is Josh. We just celebrated our 10 year wedding anniversary. Where does the time go! Josh is a Foreman at Center Point Energy. We have three beautiful children. Jacob is 20 years old, Ayden is 8 years old and is in Second Grade, and Madelyn is 6 years old and is beginning Kindergarten. For fun, my family and I spend time fishing, swimming, reading, playing board games, bike riding, walking, running, listening to music, and camping. My favorite activities include reading, painting, interior designing, running, traveling, and photographing.
On my MOODLE page, you will find a calendar and a list of upcoming events. These are tentative events. Depending on what transpires on a given day, the events may change. I may take an additional day to reteach a concept or change the order of the events. Thank you in advance for your understanding. Assignments are listed on the calendar. The assignments align with the target(s) taught that day. Most assignments are due the following day; however, if there are multiple targets, the lesson will take multiple days to complete.
For math, students will study rational numbers, algebraic equations, measures of central tendency, interest, graphing, volume, and surface area, proportions, and ratios.
I look forward to a year of wonderful and meaningful learning experiences.
