Mrs. Ellison's 7th Grade Math Class
I have had the pleasure of being a faculty member of Burke County Middle School since 2008. I have taught Study Skills, 6th, 7th, and 8th Grade Mathematics, Reading and Math/Reading Support. I reside in Waynesboro, GA with my husband and 7 year old twin boys, Ian and Emory. I enjoy reading, cooking, shopping and traveling.
The Classroom Culture
I am anticipating an exciting year with your child. As we embark upon this 2021-2022 journey, my goal is to ensure your child is proficient in all of the 6th and 7th Grade Mathematical Standards. Hard word, dedication and persistence will be paramount among students to ensure their success in this course. I will work hard to ensure every child works to achieve mastery of all standards and I will not accept mediocre work from any of my students.
In "Our" Classroom we will:
- create an environment where everyone feels comfortable
- respect others and give everyone an opportunity to speak without interrupting or criticizing
- behave appropriately
- use our time wisely and work collaboratively with our peers when necessary
- ask questions and seek assistance
In addition to traditional direct instruction, which will be minimal, students will engage primarily in self-directed learning through Google Classroom, Khan Academy and IXL.
