Keystone Jr Sr High School
Class Information:
Room Number: 167
Students per Class: 100
Class Description:
I teach General Math-8, Pre-Algebra B, and Academic Algebra II
Position:
Math Teacher - Dept, Chair
Needs:
Three years back our TI received a grant for us to obtain projectors, sound system, VHS and DVD players and a Smartboard. The price to us was 9 online classes that took a minimum of 20 hours each. What did not come with the Smart Notebook were the math tools. I recently had a 30 day trial and they make not only my life easier, but really help the students when they are at the board and in their notes.
My Philosophy:
The " I can do it " attitude is what has gotten me through life. From paying for my own education to making AYP every year since PSSA has started.
Personal Information:
