Weds after school : STAFF MEETING “unavailable”

 **** Besides the above set times, I am always happy to help a student who comes by the teachers lounge and asks for help with a problem.  There are 3 white boards on the outside hallways for that very purpose.  Please have your student stop by and utilize this feature!!  Math, ideally, is a collaborative course and the kids should bounce ideas off each other as much as possible.    Its not uncommon for 2-3 students to come to me and say, “Hey, we have all tried this like 3 different ways and we cant figure it out”  That is absolutely wonderful because when I show them the concept they almost always say, “Oooh, now I get it” because they have become so familiar with problem.

IMPORTANT!!!!

**** Study hall time  is not to be considered as personal tutoring time.   Sometimes there are upwards of 7-8 kids in the classroom.  It’s just impossible to  give individualized help at that capacity.

The best use of this time is to come with “specific” problems or questions to be worked on.  Also, bring a friend to work together as a collaborative effort on the white board using Expo markers.  [this is very helpful and rewarding college preparatory style practice]
