Welcome to the 2018 - 2019 school year at Hutchinson Middle School!
I am excited to be teaching your chid this year. I look forward to a productive partnership with you to ensure that our students have a successful year. My priority is to make lessons accessible to all students, while giving them the opportunity to collaborate, develop critical thinking skills, and successfully build a strong understanding of mathematics. Students will be able to access a rigorous curriculum in a positive learning environment.
This year, our students will be part of a culture in which they build deeper conceptual understanding of foundational ideas. These goals are outlined in our district's Math Campaign. It is expected that our students will be able to:
- Show understanding of mathematical concepts using multiple representations: concrete, pictorial, abstract
- Engage in mathematical discourse and academic writing using mathematical evidence to justify their thinking
- Persevere at points of difficulty, challenge, and error
Please join me in guiding our students to meet the goals outlined above. I have no doubt that with our guidance, encouragement, and involvement, our students will have a successful year of growth!
I look forward to an exciting and productive year!
