• Welcome to Mrs. Gammache's Math class! Mrs. Gammache
     
    She is SO excited to be a part of the learning community of Stone Hill Middle School! 
     
    Her teaching experience includes Kindergarten through 8th grade, and in the middle school subjects of Math 6, Accelerated Math 6/7, Math 7, Math 8, Pre-Algebra, Algebra I and Physical Science.  
     
    She is proud to be a product of Loudoun County Public Schools; Catoctin Elementary, Simpson Middle, and Loudoun County High School.  After graduation, she went on to earn a Bachelors of Arts degree from James Madison University and later a Masters of Science in Education from Old Dominion University. 
     
    This year she is happy to be teaching Math 6 and Math 6/7!  She is looking forward to implementing many new ideas and exploring creative ways to teach Math, including the use of technology to expand our connection to issues that face our global community.
     
    Google Classroom:  One of the ways that students utilize technology in the Math classroom is through Google Classroom.  Google Classroom is home to course Notes, Tutorials, Practice Assignments, and access to extension/enrichment activities and organizations that are using Math to make a positive impact on our world.  Mrs. Gammache also posts assessment dates in Google Classroom which then transfer to student Google calendars. 
     
    To log in to Google Classroom: students should log in to LCPS Go
    Username: Student ID
    Initial Password: 6-digit birthday (students will be prompted to create/change to a "strong" password)
    Once logged in to LCPS Go, select the "Google" Application icon.
    From there, select "Google Classroom"
    Once logged in to Google Classroom, select the + icon at the top left and "Join Class"
    Students are given a specific code to join the appropirate Google Classroom for their course and block.
     
     
    IXL:  This year we will utilize IXL to practice newly learned skills and review/preview other Math course material.
    To log in to your student IXL account, visit LCPS Go OR visit www.ixl.com
    Username: first initial + last name@shm   Ex: lgammache@shm
    Password: Student ID
     
    ALEKS:  This year will also utilize ALEKS.  ALEKS is a self-paced, adaptive Math program that provides each student with a Personalized Learning Path.  Using engaging tools, immediate feedback, and automatic assessments, ALEKS helps students to review and master the skills needed to be successful in their Math class.  Students should access ALEKS through LCPS Go.  Search for "ALEKS", click "Launch".  If their account does not load within 30 seconds, they should simply refresh the page.  If your child received an error message, they should go back to LCPS Go and re-select ALEKS.  
        
    If you ever have any questions about these resources or our classroom routine, please do not hesitate to contact Mrs. Gammache at Lori.Gammache@lcps.org
     
    Thank you all so very much for your support at home as we embark on an exciting journey here at Stone Hill Middle School!
