I'm so excited to have our school year started!  I'm looking forward to spending the year with this team of kids!
Resources such as powerpoints, videos, and helpful links will be kept on Canvas.  I will email parents weekly in regards to upcoming activities and the topics that we are learning in class.  Photos of the class in daily activities, such as character assemblies and field trips, will be shared out through Class Dojo!
If you ever have any questions, please feel free to contact me here at school. My email is rwaters@wolves.k12.mo.us and you can also reach me at 272-8250 ext 2725.
I look forward to working along with you this year!

1:1 Pedagogy Statement

I believe that mathematics and technology go hand in hand.  With that being said, mathematics and teaching in general will require different thought and approach than before. It will require a balance of direct instruction with exploration and inquiry. I believe that by effectively integrating technology as a resource into my classroom, it will allow my students to experience mathematics in a more individualized and engaging way.

I will utilize technology to ensure that my students are learning in a way that best fits their needs through the use of virtual lessons, explorations, online tutorials and peer collaboration. I will also provide my students opportunities to demonstrate their learning and comprehension at higher levels.  

My students will become more effective problem solvers by making mathematical and “authentic” real-world connections using technology. My students will implement and initiate the use of reliable resources to make mathematical content more dynamically engaging, relevant and applicable, and further their individual learning through curiosity and inquiry.  Students will also be able to collaborate and communicate with their peers to make further connections in their learning.
