"In a world where you can be anything, be KIND!"
My goal is to help your child learn in an exploratory way to where students feel that making a mistake is not always wrong. A mistake is where we sometimes learn the best lessons. As your child's teacher, I will encourage them, lead them, and support them o this incredible new journey. In this class, we are a small community of teammates that help and accept one another. We may not always agree, but we will be respectful and informative as we disagree with others' thoughts. I believe that valuable learning occurs when children feel comfortable and happy in their classroom. I look forward to getting to know your child and the support system that surrounds them. Everyone has individual needs and goals and I am dedicated to your child's individual success!!!
WELCOME TO SMYRNA MIDDLE SCHOOL!
New to the 6th Grade:
As the new school year begins, I would like to take this time to explain that the state of TN Science standards changed last year. I also would like to explain how this may change how your child's thought process may be different. In previous years, students are accustomed to memorizing information and regurgitating it on a test. Our new standards are focused on students taking ownership of their own learning, and applying the information on tasks and scenarios. This may be difficult at first for students, but once they become familiar with the new format it will become easier.
This will be learning time for everyone and we can't give up.
