    Teaching Philosophy 
    Learning  anything worthwhile requires concentrated effort. Given enough effort, any student can not only succeed, but exceed in any class. Learning is also a partnership between the student and the teacher, where both members of the partnership must be devoted to the students' success.    
    Teacher's Expectations 
    I expect every one of my students to have a positive attitude toward learning Math, no matter how they personally feel about it. I expect my students to be respectful to each other, and also to teachers, tutors and administrators who enter or are part of our classroom. I expect my students to be responsible by getting to class on time, and being prepared for each work day.
    Classroom Structures: 
    Structure 1: students are informally assigned seats. The classroom is in rows and columns.  This is used for testing and formally assigned work .
    Structure 2: students are assigned into  working teams. The teams work together to solve problems and accomplish group goals.
    Structure 3: students are assigned into a three-station system of learning with each station being designated to complete defined mathematical activities. These stations will rotate throughout with the day, and are divided into blocked time periods.  
    We use the consumable book: Algebra 1 by HMH Publishers which is housed in the classroom.
