Looking Forward to A Great Year!

Hello, I am Ms. Barnes, and I am delighted to be your child’s math teacher. I am looking forward to working with you and your child this school year to embrace a college bound culture by building character and academic success.

This year your child will embark upon various lessons that will strength his/her conceptual understanding of mathematics.  My lessons are rigorous, coherent, aligned, and coordinated to facilitate self-directed learners who construct meaning through exploration, real world problem solving, reasoning, and proofs.  I use best practices and research-based methods as I employ multiple strategies allowing for students to experience rich, authentic, and rigorous mathematics using resources, tools, and technology to solve real-world problems.  My classroom is a safe environment where students feel free to express their thoughts and become actively engaged in their learning by talking and sharing math related ideas. 

School Motto:

Strack, Where Cougars belong and Cougars succeed! 

Class Motto:

I am nothing short of exemplary!

Class Creed:

I believe in myself and my ability to do my best. I will think. I will listen. I will actively participate in my own success. I will act like a proud Strack Cougar student. I will do all of this with one purpose in mind, to give my best, for this day will not come again.
