About Me

I graduated from Texas A&M University (Whoop!) with a B.S. in Interdisciplinary Studies, specializing in grades 4-8 Math and Science. When I am not teaching 6th grade Science, I love to spend time with friends and family. This is my 4th year at Spring Oaks Middle School and I have loved every minute! Please contact me with any questions. Go Panthers!

Tutorials

 

If you would like to attend tutorials, I am available in the morning before school, after school, or even during lunch! However, you must let me know when you are going to be there and I WILL BE THERE! Please have me sign your school planner as this is your pass to be in the hallway before and after school.

 

Make-up Work and Retesting

 

District policy states that for each day a student is out, a day is given to make up the work. Absent students should obtain their work from the “Absent” bin in Ms. Gajeski’s classroom upon returning to class. This is the responsibility of the student!
 
Retesting is encouraged and available at the request of the student. As per Spring Oaks guidelines, it is the responsibility of the student to schedule a retesting date and time with Ms. Gajeski. Retesting times can be scheduled before school, during 6th grade lunch, or after school (except during holidays and teacher duty weeks) by appointment only. The maximum grade allowed on a re-test is a 70%
