About Me

I am a Texas A&M University graduate...whoop! I have recently moved to Houston and love exploring the area. I am excited to start my teaching career at Cornerstone and know that this is the BEST place to be and a dream come true! I look forward to a wonderful year!  

 

We don't hand out textbooks in our classes.  To access the math textbooks though, you'll need to login to my.hrw.com.  You can get your login credentials from Miss Futrell.

Go to Math Resources (Links & Documents)     -     Go to 7th Science

Math homework is expected to be completed nightly.  We will go over answers in class the day after the assignment is given.  Homework is an opportunity for students to practice and get feedback while they're learning as well as to practice skills they learned previously.  Homework will not be taken up for a grade on a daily basis.  However, students are still expected to complete the assignments.  If they do not complete the assignment on time, they will be required to complete the assignment and turn it in. On Fridays, one homework from the previous Wednesday to the current Wednesday will be collected as a grade - it will be based on their corrected work. Another motivator for completing homework:  Questions from homework assignments are likely to be seen again on graded assessments. 

Tutorials will be provided at least one day per week after school until 4:15pm.  You may pick up your child at 4:15 or they can ride a bus to their nearest elementary school.  If you know you want your child to stay for tutorials or Learning Lab, please send them with a dated note, or send an e-mail, stating that you want them to stay, the subject they'll be working on, and how they'll be getting home (personal vehicle, bus, or walking); this will keep us from having to call you during the day. 

I will typically be available for tutorials on Tuesdays, but can add an additional day if necessary.  Tutorial days will be posted in the calendar.  If the posted tutorial date conflicts with other items on your schedule, please let me know and we'll try to work something out.

My conference/planning period is from 9:20am to 10:05am.  If you have any questions or concerns, please feel free to set up a phone or personal conference during that time.  If I'm not otherwise occupied, I would be glad to meet with you at that time!
