Mrs. Hemme

Welcome to my math and science class!  My goal on a daily basis is to make my students enjoy what they are learning. I encourage lots of questions, classroom discussion, and hands-on activities.  I love when my class is excited about what they are learning. 

A successful math and science class requires my students to listen attentively, work together in groups, share their mathematical and scientific thinking, and respect the ideas of others.  My classroom provides a rich and exciting environment that will prepare students for the next level and help them make connections between their classwork and the world around them.

Students are immersed in all aspects of language arts through our standards-based Journeys curriculum.  We also spend time weekly in a writing lab where students self-select from topics of high personal interest.  I enjoy working with our students and watching them grow in skill and knowledge.

Mrs. Menz Language Arts
Our language arts routine includes daily practice. Students will often be able to complete work during class time. Any work not finished during class needs to be completed independently and turned into Mrs. Menz's homework box (or submitted through Google classroom for certain assignments) by the start of the next school day. Failing to turn work in on time may result in a ten percent deduction of points on the assignment.

Mrs. Hemme Math and Science
Math homework is assigned daily, but students are provided ample class time to finish. Any work that is not completed will need to be taken home and returned the next day.
