Welcome to 8th Grade Math
My name is Mrs. Tindell and I will be asking you join me on a quest to understand algebra this year. I have been a teacher for 25 years (WOW, more years than you have been alive) with 20 years being at Antioch Upper Grade School. I have always taught 8th grade and love the curriculum of introducing and getting into the hard core concepts of algebra (x, y, and z really rock!!!!).
I live in Antioch with my husband and two kids (Joe-16 and Sidney-15). My favorites are white chocolate, purple, and having boneless wings at Buffalo Wild Wings (yum yum Asian Zing). My hobbies include scrapbooking, camping, and playing Toy Blast.
Success in my class depends on you
using the following resources to help you:
The best way to contact me is by email. I usually check email in the morning, at lunch, and then after school. Please allow me 24 hours to get back to you.
Assignments follow my grading policy. Use your Math's section on my Weekly Calendar to see a video lesson associated with the concept and a link to the assignment.
The best way to get reminders about upcoming tests, quizzes, or projects is to look at the my Weekly Calendar link on this website. I will send an email about Module Tests because any missing work from that Module will be due on the day of the assessment.
Grades are updated weekly usually during the weekend. Please check your grade on Mondays through Power School to view the most up-to-date progress.
