Course Syllabus

Advanced Math 7 / Honors Math 7-8

Mrs. Snipes

This year is going to be FANTASTIC! I am beginning my 27th year of teaching and love middle school!! Developing relationships is of utmost importance as I strive to create a classroom climate of respect in order to foster open communication. It is my personal goal for students to be able to find their individual voices to appropriately express themselves so that they may maximize their potential by taking ownership of their learning. Through a partnership with parents, we can help students achieve in ways they did not even know they could. I will observe and assess your student and strive to give individual feedback daily. I believe that students should begin to advocate for themselves and realize that their individual voices are important. I encourage students to email me or speak with me to communicate their academic needs/concerns. Confidence building is key is preparing students for a successful high school experience! It is imperative for parents to know what to expect so that they can support their child at home. Grades need to be checked weekly at the very least to keep informed of any grade concerns. Please check here for a weekly overview of my lessons.
