A little about me!
Hello. I am Terri Johnson. This is my 2nd year at Port Neches Middle School. Although it is my 2nd year here, this is my 28th year teaching all levels of Math. I moved back into the area after living in Houston for 25 years. Even though I was away from the best town all those years, my Indian pride and traditions always followed me. I am a 1988 graduate of Port Neches -Groves High School. Coming home to teach in the district that groomed me to be the best person I could be has been a honor. I graduated from Lamar University with a B.S. in Interdisciplinary Studies with a math emphasis for grades 1-8.
My philosophy of education is to make math meaningful to the student, to challenge the student to become independent thinkers, and to be an active participant in the class. I believe that teachers and parents working together guarantees the student will leave PNMS prepared for high school.
Please take time to read my newsletter for the year. In the newsletter, I provide some helpful hints to be successful in 7th grade. Also, I provided the policies and expectations for a great learning environment. Everyone working together to help the class stay positive only make for a happy time! When we are happy, are brains are more opened to learn some great things in math.
Math is the subject area that is like a sport (I call it the academic sport). There are basic skills that the child learns when they are in elementary. In middle school, the child will apply all those basic skills they learned in elelmetary to real world concepts. This is why I call math the "acadmeic sport". The student is applying all those skills in the "game " of life!
The year will be great! Key phrases to remember: Stay positive! Don't give up! Plan ahead!
