Math

About My Classroom

Hello! My name is Beth Tollefson and I so enjoy teaching math to the wonderful middle school students of St Jerome School!

On a typical day, no matter the grade level of math, we start out correcting the last evening’s homework, learn a new lesson, and then have independent time to start the current night’s homework and, more importantly, get help as wanted. It will be rare that there is no homework, so please help your student get in the habit of bringing home his/her textbook and binder each night!

As for the binders: each student in middle school math was given a white three-ring binder in which to put his/her provided notesheets and completed homework. In these binders, you will find a provided grading rubric; each test day the binders will be collected and graded for proper completion. St Jerome and the middle school team is using this concept, at the math level, to help students learn to be organized and how to study in preparation for skills they will need in high school.

My door is (almost!) always open for math help! I come in early and stay late most days; I am available for help Wednesday, Thursday, and Friday 8:15am+ and Monday, Tuesday, Wednesday, Thursday 4:10pm+; I just appreciate a heads up, if possible, that your student is coming in! For those that can’t come early/stay late, we will try and find a different time during the day to connect.

Please do not hesitate to be in touch if you have any questions, concerns, or suggestions that will allow me to ensure greater math success for your student. I can be reached at btollefson@stjeromeschool.org and my cell # is 651.402.1887 :)
