Ms. Kerry SmithMs. Kerry Smith, Math 7 and Coding Teacher
Welcome to Math 7 and Coding! I am pleased to have you with me for my fourth year teaching Math and my first year teaching Coding at Harmony Middle School. I am a JMU graduate where I earned my degree in Psychology and Middle School Education. I began teaching in Fairfax County almost 20 years ago where I taught 4th and 6th grades for several years before having my 4 children. After a long break from full time teaching, I eagerly returned to the classroom three years ago, and I am looking forward to another fabulous year at Harmony!
As for Math, I want you to know a few things... YES YOU CAN!!! You absolutely can "do Math", and this year we will further broaden your mind, stabilize your Math foundation, and build your confidence. YOU ARE A VALUABLE RESOURCE to our class whether you understand or are confused, so you will be expected to contribute and share no matter what! We all can and will learn from each other, me included!! Be prepared to question, look at things in new and different ways, and to appreciate the art of making mistakes and growing from them. These are the ingredients to Math success!
Can't wait to learn, problem-solve, and grow with you!
