Middle School Students are unique in every way.  

So many new experiences are happening academically, emotionally, socially and physically,  it is no wonder our kiddos are often difficult to understand.   The truth is, they don't understand themselves. 
 If you have ever been in this state of mind as an adult, can you even imagine what it is like for a 10-14 year old?  
Our 6th graders go through some of the most dramatic changes of their lives and boy can it be DRAMATIC for all of us.  😊😊

Below are some topics that will be embedded into our MATH CLASS throughout the year. 
Enjoy exploring these sites with your student.
