I am a native of Millington, TN and a graduate of Woodstock High School and the University of Memphis. I have a  degree in counseling from Western Kentucky University.  When my husband retired from the military, we returned HOME.  I have taught Mathematics at Millington High School for 19 years.

Welcome to the 2017-2018 school year. I am looking forward to working with our Millington students this year.  It is very important that we get off to a good start and that we stay focused throughout the year.

Suggested materials:

  1. Textbook
  2. Lined paper
  3. Pencil
  4. Protractor
  5. A scientific calculator
  6. 1 box of tissue
  7. A pocket folder or 3-ring binder

Students are expected to:

  1. Be on time (in seat when the bell rings)
  2. Be prepared and bring appropriate materials to class
  3. Stay on task—Complete assignments daily
  4. Follow instructions the first time they are given.
  5. Respect self and others!

Grade Computation:

Tests------------------------50%

Homework---------------10% (any work not completed in class becomes HOMEWORK)

Quizzes--------------------20%

Classwork----------------20%

 
 Students are expected to keep all work neatly organized in a folder or binder. This will enable the parent to see what the student is doing in Geometry on a daily basis. 


During the week of October 16-20, 2017, Geometry classes will review Unit 3, section 5. This section dealt with using the slopes of lines to 
determine if lines were parallel, perpendicular or neither. We will conclude the unit with section 6  which uses the slope-intercept form and point-slope form of the equation of a line. There will be a quiz over the 2 units at the end of the week.

Students are allowed to redo assignments to show mastery of an objective. The student will need to make arrangements with the teacher to redo assignments before or after school.
