  • Things you should know...

    Posted by Danny Derden on 8/21/2012
    First and foremost, WELCOME BAAAACK!
     
    I serve as the AMI teacher for Godwin Elementary. That means that I am responsible for helping bring the math skills of our struggling students up to grade level. I work closely with the math teachers from all grade levels and with any and all parents that are truly interested and willing to ensure their children understand, learn, and master mathematics. If you have questions, comments, concerns, or suggestions about the math curriculum or instruction feel free to speak with your child's regular math teacher or me at any time before or after instruction (please don't interrupt instruction times!!!). 
     
    A word concerning homework. I do not generally assign AMI homework, but if you as a parent want some extra practice for your student then I am all for it on the condition that you agree that once assigned it is not optional, it is required. I also ask that parents who want extra work for their children agree to spend a few minutes going over that work each time they do it. Your interest in their math work will result in them being more interested in the work and putting more effort into it and thereby getting more out of it. So if this sounds like something you want to do for and with your child(ren) then shoot me an email and I will make sure you get some work that you and your student(s) can benefit from.
