About Me

I’ve been teaching middle school math since September 2008.  Over the years I have taught a variety of math classes from 5th grade math to Algebra I (and an occasional additional non-math class).     I also do alot of math tutoring on the side.  I feel very fortunate to be doing what I love on a daily basis (and getting paid for it)!  

On the side, I also enjoy creating and selling math resources on Teachers pay Teachers.  I encourage any teacher who creates their own teaching resources to look into selling them on Teachers pay Teachers.  Its free to join and is a great source of additional income!  [Click here to sign up for a free Teachers pay Teachers seller account using my referral code.]

When I’m not teaching, tutoring, or creating resources , I enjoy spending time with my husband and our dog in our New Jersey home.


Thanks for reading,

  1. I am a first year teacher. I’m teaching 4th grade all subjects. I googled “student assignment sheet” and came across your page. THANK YOU!!!! I admire just the little bit of work I’ve viewed.

  2. How do you arrive at your final homework grade for the nine weeks?
    How do you incorporate homework grade into the test grades for the report grade?

    1. Hi Jean,

      Because I use the point system, rather than a percent system of grading I don’t have to worry about a final homework grade for each marking period. I just enter in homework grades as I get them. The students’ report card grades are calculated by dividing their total earned points by total points possible and that incorporates every graded assignment from the year – tests, quizzes, homework, ckasswork, etc. Different assignments are worth different point values so they affect a srudent’s grades differently. If you check out my post where I share my syllabus you can read about my grading policy on the syllabus. http://math-in-the-middle.com/2014/08/04/making-expectations-clear-from-the-very-beginning/

      Hope that helps!

    1. Hi Kim,

      I’m not sure which poster you are referring to since I have two that are free, so I’ll give you the links for both:

      My free homework poster is here: https://www.teacherspayteachers.com/Product/Homework-Poster-for-Middle-School-or-High-School-Math-Classroom-FREE-2533132

      My free math practice standards banner is here:

      Hope that helps!

    What font do you use to make a lot of your resources? I love the font on the notepaper used for your prime factorization. And, I also like the font used for your banner of math practice standards.
