Welcome to Algebra 1

This site will be used daily; please bookmark it and return frequently.
Algebra is the foundation for all future math learning and it models so much of our world. It's my intent to help you make your foundation broad, deep, and strong. To this end, I respect my students previous learning and knowledge and will make every effort to help connect new concepts and understandings to what they already know. I do expect my students to take responsibility for their own learning and work.
You may e-mail me anytime you like, but please keep in mind my working day is 6:30 am - 2 pm. I will check periodically throughout the day, though, so you can expect a reply within 24 hours during the week and within 36-48 hours on a weekend or holiday.
Students and Parents -  please sign up for my Remind.  Check the syllabus for the correct codes.  I am happy to provide homework help if your notes, textbook, a classmate, or other provided resource is not ending your struggle in a reasonable amount of time.  I don't want you to give up, so please reach out when you need to.
Parents - 
The parent portal for Curve is ready.  Use this step sheet to register. NOTE: You must make your Curve account with the SAME e-mail address you use to login to PowerSchool.
You will be able to see all your students classes and coach them at home.  Helping your student to manage their time and stay organized will be invaluable.  I am here to help you and your student.  We are a team and together we can ensure learning and growth stays our focus.
The place to go when you need answers about going to Virtual school in Bartlett City Schools.  For example, you can find the Virtual Student Handbook, the Virtual Learning Plan, and how to step sheets and videos.
As a second resource for you I will post any "how to" directions I present in class (or in a zoom) in my Curve class.
Tutoring through Zoom will be utilized on an as-needed basis. Please email me to set this up.
