I graduated from Old Dominion University in 1979 and have been teaching in Suffolk Public Schools ever since. Most of the time I have been at John Yeates Middle (and John Yeates High) Schools. First as a choral teacher/conductor and then as a math teacher.
I believe every student can be a successful math student whether they are enrolled in Pre-Algebra, Algebra, Geometry, or advanced math. The keys are careful practice, perserverance, and asking questions. Extra help is offered after school and during the last 30 minutes of Physical Education. Unless a student is not enrolled in PE, I try not to remediate during an exploratory class. In order to stay informed, parents and students are encouraged to participate in the REMIND program.
Working together we are going to have a wonderful year.
