Block 1

Students are starting off strong in Topic 4. So far we have learned about determining if a value is a solution to an algebraic equation, the Properties of Equality and solving and equation using the inverse operation. Student have their homework written in their planners and I provide in in google classroom. I am seeing a few students not getting the homework completed and this will earn them a minus in their planner and could keep them from going out on the earned recesses on Mondays. We hope to get a start on our Pick a Projects and something new this semester is that students will be tracking and reflecting on their iReady lessons in hopes for some great growth at the end of the year.

Back to School Night             

 Hello!!
My name is Andi Skolout and I am so excited to be spending this next year with you and your 6th grade student. I have been teaching in the district for over ten years. This will be my seventh year teaching 6th grade math here at SCE. I feel I have really found a home here. I love teaching in DCSD. Teaching is a second career for me and I graduated from Regis University of Denver.
I have high expectations of all my students in their learning and behaviors. At this point in a student's educational career I believe they should know and show respect, responsibility, and a resolve of learning to the best of their ability. I love what I do and I work very hard to ensure my students are learning, and hopefully, loving learning. I look forward to a great year!!
