Welcome to Mr. Brooks' Class
Parents and Students,
It is a pleasure to have your kids in my class this year! I am so excited to be the new fourth grade math and science teacher for Dr. N.H. Jones Elementary. Although I am new to Dr. N.H. Jones staff, I am not new to the fourth grade and I know the math and science curriculum very well and look forward to a successful year.
We will work hard this year to master all of the standards and will track our progress on our mastery wall. The students will be responsible in determining when they have mastered each standard. Once we agree they have mastered the standards they will sign the standard and we will display it on the mastery wall. We will practice and practice makes perfect.
On a personal note, I am a married father of two, Miller is six in first grade and Mary Frances is nine in fourth grade at Dr. N.H. Jones. I know how awesome the students, faculty, and staff are because I’ve seen it firsthand for the last four years. I love music, kayaking, camping and anything outdoors. I love the Orlando City Lions, the Jacksonville Jaguars, UCF Knights, Florida Gators, and FSU Seminoles (except when they play the Gators).
I will be using ClassDojo as lines of communication and delivering our daily common board. The common board will list the day’s topic, standard, learning goal, essential question, agenda, and practice problems with solutions. I will post this in ClassDojo each day so you know what we are working on. I encourage you to use it as a reference and reinforce what was taught in class. This will assure the mastery of the standards we will be working toward.
If you have any questions please direct message me on ClassDojo or by email at Cary.Brooks@marion.k12.fl.us
