    Foundations of Algebra (Math 7)

    and CAMS (Coding)

    Welcome to Foundations of Algebra and Coding! I am pleased to have you with me for my fifth year teaching Math and my second year teaching Coding at Harmony Middle School. I am a JMU graduate where I earned my degree in Psychology and Middle 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 five 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!

    Ms. Smith

    Staying Informed

    I post my assignments and class announcements through my Schoology classes. Please check there frequently for assignments, announcements, and other important information. Students can find access to their courses through the Schoology app in LCPSGo.

    Parents are able to see each of their child's classes, including assignments, calendars, and notices. There is a link to Schoology in Phoenix.

    Phoenix is the official grade book for all Loudoun County Public Schools. My grade book will be updated weekly.
