A Little About Me!
Welcome to 6th grade!
I will be teaching all the 6th grade math classes this 2023-2024 school year. We will be using a new curriculum this year called Illustrative Mathematics. With this curriculum and other activities, all students will have the opportunity to be prepared for 7th grade by the end of the year.
I have a earned a Bachelor's Degree in Education and a Master's Degree in Curriculum and Instruction. I have middle school endorsements in mathematics, science, language arts, social studies, and English as a second language.
I taught in various suburbs for 5 years and am starting my 19th year here at Garvy School. At Garvy, I have taught in grades 4th through 7th but have taught 7th grade for the several years. This is my sixth year in the sixth grade. Also, having taught 7th grade and knowing the curriculum so well, I understand where my 6th students will need to be by the end of the year to be successful in 7th grade!
In my free time, I love spending time with my family. I have a husband and two sons. I enjoy watching movies and reading when I have time. Also, I have a puppy who turns one in October who I love to take on walks and hang out with. This is going to be an exciting year!
Please email me if you have any questions throughout the year. I will respond within one school day.
Thank you, Mrs. McCain
