### Ms. Jelinski

My name is Ms. Jelinski and I am a sixth grade math teacher at Forestview Middle School. I had the privledge of starting at Forestview at the beginning of the 2015-2016 school year. I am originally from Little Falls, MN. I went to Minnesota State University Moorhead where I earned my Bachelor’s Degree in Mathematics Education grades 5-12.

Before getting hired with the Brainerd School District, I taught 6th grade for one year at
Worthington Middle School in Worthington, MN.

Some of my hobbies include: playing volleyball, fishing, Sudoku puzzles, running, and anything outdoors! :)

 Assignments:Students should copy assignments in their agendas as well as the lesson being covered each day. Math assignments are usually due two days after the assigned date by 3:00. If your child has a question, he/she may use the "view an example" resource on the Pearson Digits website, see me before or after school, or during 7th hour (Power Hour), or e-mail the question to me. I will respond as soon as possible. Students will lose 5 percentage points per week if an assignment is late.**If your child scores below 70% on their homework assignments they have the opportunity to redo it for full credit**Tests:Students will be given the option to take a paper version of tests OR one on the computer. Redo Tests:If your child scores below 70% on their Topic exams they will be given the opportunity to earn percentage points back by doing a different version of the test. Students will be given 4 days to complete these. A note will be attached to the front of the test asking for a Parent/Guardian signature which verifies that the child worked on this at home and used their notes, Student Companion Book, and a calculator, if needed.
