WHAT’S SO AWESOME ABOUT TEAM 3?...
EVERYTHING!
Team 3 is a combination of 6th
graders and 7th graders- the only combo
team in the school! These students will
have a slightly different schedule from
the other teams in the building.
Though the schedule may provide
challenges, the Team 3 teachers are
willing to help and will be patient as
we all start the school year and get into
the swing of things.

6th and 7th Grade Math
Every child has the potential to learn...I believe
every student can achieve success in
mathematics with the proper guidance,
instruction, challenge and motivation. I enjoy
showing parents and students there
are many ways to solve a problem,
they just need to figure out what
works for them.
