Ms. Francis is Rocking out Math in 6th Grade!

Ms. Francis rose in benchmark scores from 49% in BM #2 to over 61% in BM #3. She facilitates higher order lesson plans and shares collaborative activities. Despite working with some difficult students on her 6th grade team, she has had no major discipline referrals this school year! She is proof that quality instruction will minimize disruptions. Ms. Francis was asked why does she think her students have been so successful this year and her response was, " I simply believe that all of my students can learn and can be successful. When they fail and are unsuccessful, I fail." I encourage each of you to visit Ms. Francis classroom and you will see how committed she and her students are to each other. She is our March teacher feature for excellence in the classroom.

Friday Review submissions are due to Janet Jacobs by Thursdays at 4:00pm at
