Welcome to the 2016-2017 School Year!

This year I have the privilege of teaching Math to the 8th grade students at W.R. Tolar.  In addition to Math, I am also 
teaching a new PEER class.  PEER is an elective course in which students are assigned to help students in lower grades 
who may be struggling with a certain academic skill, focus, or staying on task.  PEER students work with both the teacher
and student to help improve the student's understanding and educational success.

The best way to contact me is via email.  Due to our schedule, I will not be taking phone calls during 
class.  If you need to leave a voice message, please keep in mind that I will only check it during 
my planning period and after school.  It is my goal to return any emails or voice messages within 
24 hours.  If you have an emergency and need to reach your child or me, please call the front office.

We use ClassDoJo to reward good behavior!

At W.R. Tolar we like to focus on positive behavior.  ClassDoJo is a fun way for our class to track that behavior and reward students for displaying outstanding character traits.  Parents can view their student's behavior in class by signing up to receive email updates.  Letters were sent home with students the beginning of September with access codes, however, if you are interested in signing up, please let me know and I will email you the access code information.  My email address can be found at the top of this page.
