Carter's Creative Crew

Every child deserves a champion, an adult who will never give up on them, who understands the power of connection, and insists that they become the best that they can possibly be.

My name is Kimberly Carter, and I teach your child math and science. This is my forth year teaching in the Monroe City School System. Prior to moving to Monroe I taught in the Jefferson Parish School System.

 

  • This year in Math we will be using the Eureka math series. This is the third year for Eureka Math at M.J. Foster. I will send each lesson home with your child after we have completed it for you to use as a help with homework.  Students will also be using the Accelerated Math computer program. Accelerated Math reinforces skills taught in class with online exercises. Data is collected by the program to gauge how well students will perform on state mandated tests. Please use Khanacademy.org for help with Eureka Math.

                                                                        

  • FIELD TRIPS: We will be planning fun and educational field trips this year. Permission to attend field trips will be based on your child displaying positive behaviors in the classroom and around campus.

     

  • DAILY SCHEDULE: Our daily schedule includes one hour of math instruction, which includes teacher led and group activities introducing the common core skills and preparing students for standardized test. An additional 30 minutes will be used to complete Accelerated Math and other computer tasks as they are assigned.

     

  • BEHAVIOR MANAGEMENT: Each student starts the week with a 100 in conduct. Behavior is documented on a weekly behavior chart. Students are given a check-mark for each violation of the class or school rules. Each infraction is -2 points. Students will bring behavior grades home each week. Students with positive behaviors will receive special treats. Continual parental contact is an important part of the behavior management system in my classroom.

     

  • ABSENTEES: Attendance is very important! We want to see your child’s smiling face every day; however we know life happens and sometimes they will be sick. If your child is ill and misses school, please send an excuse from the doctor when the child returns to school.                   

     

  • CONTACT  INFORMATION: Please feel free to contact me during school hours at 318-325-7979, I can also be reached via email at kimberly.carter@mcschools.net. If you must meet with me please be sure to schedule a meeting during my planning time, Tuesday and Wednesday, from 11:15 AM – 12:00 Noon.

I look forward to a very successful year with you and your child. Remember you have entrusted me with your most prized possession, your child, and I take the job of teaching them very seriously. Together I think we will have an AWESOME year!

Together with our teacher we plan to blaze trails, never before traveled. S.T.E.M. education will be a focal point in Science, and we will continue to use Eureka Math and it’s strategies to gain a deeper understanding of mathematical concepts. Watch out for us, for we are the future leaders of this country.
