Hello, Everyone!!! My name is George Mitchell and I will your 8th grade Mathematics and Algebra 1 teacher for this year. I have been a teacher of mathematics for nearly 20 years and have been a tacher in Madison County for 7 years. I enjoy listening to music (jazz, synthwave, rock), playing with puzzles(word, number, or jigsaw), and cooking. I also enjoy watching my students learn as they collaborate with others to solve problems, and I am excited to see how much you will learn this year.
Over the past few months, we have been faced with some unfamiliar challenges. Moving forward, I am expecting more challenges to come. While maintaining safe practices during this pandemic, you will be involved in collaborative, exploratory activities that allow you to experience mathematics in (hopefully) a new way.
It is important that you place your concentration on the math learning. Grades are secondary; a result of your learning. Learn from your mistakes. Many math concepts have been developed by learning from past mistakes and learning how to improve upon them. Once you've learned a concept or skill, PRACTICE IT!
Let’s work together to help your child have a successful year. Some things that can be done at home to contribute to your child’s success:
- Make sure your child has comfortable and quiet area to study and do homework.
- Check homework for accuracy and completeness
- Express high yet realistic expectations for achievement
- Encourage your child daily to do their best
Have FUN! Learn!
