Welcome to the new school year. I am excited to get to know your children and work with them to increase their math skills and overall confidence in Math. This is my second year at NBJHI but I am not new to teaching. I have been teaching for 30 years, and specifically in the math content for the past 17 years.

    In our classroom you will see students busy working both independently and collaboratively. We will be "talking math" and sharing thoughts and processes used for completing real world math application tasks. We will be working toward having a growth mindset this year. Students with a growth mindset believe that intelligence can grow with learning and practice. Students value effort and learning and don't give up when something is hard. We will celebrate our mistakes and see them as learning opportunities for growth.
