Welcome!

Welcome to Geometry

First Day of School - September 6th
Supply List

I want to welcome you and your family to Jefferson Middle School.  I am looking forward to working with you and your student this year.  Our math program is student centered, hands-on, and offers many opportunities for meaningful discussions.  The students at Jefferson who are most successful in this class have four strategies in common:  they care about their learning, they fully participate in class, they do quality nightly homework, and they attend school each day.

To help students be even more successful with math, we provide after-school help in the Library, Monday through Thursday 2:30 - 3:30pm. 

Feel free to contact me at azieske@osd.wednet.edu or stop by room 27We before or after school.
