    Greetings~ 
     
    I am excited to be a part of R.B. Glenn High School.  I have been teaching Math  since 2004.  I wear many hats which include being a wife, mother, teacher, and a student.  My goal is to help my students meet their math goals and objectives, according to Winston Salem Forsyth County Schools and the North Carolina Department of Public Instruction.  I look forward to being a part of the Bobcats and working with every one.

    Home work is REQUIRED! Mathematics is a subject that not only needs to be comprehended, but practiced as well to fully grasp its content. All homework is to be kept in an organized fashion in your binder unless told otherwise. Homework is to help you develop a better understanding, and can be a helpful study guide for quizzes and tests.

    • Complete all problems with proper work – 100%
    • Complete less than all but more than half with proper work - 85%
    • Complete half or have no work shown – 70%
    • Complete less than half – 0%

     

    Make up work: Two days will be provided for every day missed for any assignment. Five days will be provided to make up any test.

     

    • If you have 1 absence you have 2 days to turn in assignments.
    • If you miss the day before a test, you are required to take the test the following day of your return. If you miss the day OF a test, you are required to take it the day that you return.
    • If six or more days are missed student(s) will be referred to Saturday/Evening School a contract will be implemented to turn in to administration
