Welcome to Mrs. Cantwell's classes at Saint Mary School.
 
This year I will be teaching Advanced Algebra , Algebra 1 , and Pre Algebra classes.
 
I have been teaching Junior High Math, PreAlgebra and Algebra 1  classes at Saint Mary's since 1994. Over the years I have seen many new programs and classes grow and develop. The  addition of the Algebra 2 class is just one of the many challenging classes offered at St. Mary. 
 
 We have new math books this year. One of the features of our new books is access to online services; videos, extra practice, quizzes, online book access, and enrichment .  Look for online assignments to be a part of the math program. 

Students will be using scientific and graphing calculators to further develop problem solving strategies and explore deeper content. 

I am looking forward to an exciting and challenging new school year.
 
 
 
 Need some extra help:
I am available after school  on Tuesday or Thursday and/or at lunch; just ask
