Welcome 6th grade students and families!
Get ready to OBSERVE, THINK, and QUESTION!
This year we will be exploring, learning, and becoming globally aware. My goal as an educator is to foster creativity, critical thinking, collaboration, and communication. Throughout the year, students will take action on issues they are passionate about and take their place in society as a POWERFUL force that can change the world to make it a better place.
"You must be the change you wish to see in the world." -Gandhi

Mathematicians in the house!
An inquiry into Surface Area-Mathematicians Rock! Common Core mathematics requires a balanced approach to math which includes procedural fluency, conceptual understanding, and real-world application. Our 6th grade students kicked off our geometry unit with an application problem involving our lovely assistant principal Mrs. Obrist. Students asked "How much foil would it take to cover Mrs. Obrist's office? What is the surface area of her office? How much much would it cost to pull off this prank?" Special thanks to Mrs. Obrist for being such a great sport and supporting our students' inquiry, motivation, and meaning in mathematics!
