Royse City 8th Grade Math

Mrs. Whitaker's Class

Welcome to 8th Grade Math!

Welcome to 8th grade at Royse City Middle School! This is my 1st year at RCMS and I am so happy to be part of such a great school and district. I have also taught Middle School Math in McKinney ISD for 3 years, Lewisville ISD for 6 years where I also served as a Design Coach, helping secondary Math teachers innovate their classrooms so I love technology, too!! I'm excited to have now found a school family so close to my home southeast of Greenville. I have been married nearly 25 years and have 3 great kids... Ashley is a senior at a college in Nashville graduating in May, Haley is starting out as a Freshman at Liberty University in Virginia and my youngest and only son will be finishing up an early college program at UNT, graduating from TAMS in May with 60 hours of college credit! It's going to be a great year and the expectations are high! Be ready!! :)
