Welcome to Middle School Math in Texas!

My name is Jamie Cook, and I currently teach 8th grade math in Gladewater, Texas. I have been teaching for the past 8 years. I love the middle school group!

I work with a great group of teachers. Several of us have compiled our thoughts, and we have presented at CAMT. Our presentations are based on things that we have done and what has worked for us. As teachers, we are always learning, and it is always great to learn things from each other. We have seen tremendous success with our students, and we want all students to share in this success. If we can offer ideas and materials that helps at least one person, then we know we have done something great!

If you have any questions please send me an email at: cookj@gladewaterisd.com. You can also find more information about what is happening in my class room on my class wiki: Mrs. Cook's Math Class. Please join my blog at Cookin' Up Fun With Middle School Math!

You may be wondering how our classes are designed. We are an aligned department, both horizontally and vertically. All of our classes are designed the same way. When a student goes from one grade to the next, the math class is still the same! We are fortunate to have a double block of math every day.

I have included a link to information pertaining to our math department.

Voki: One of the sessions at CAMT discussed vokis in the classroom. I think this will be something fun to add to the class to keep the attention of the students. It was really easy to create, and it is FREE! I embedded the voki I created. You can customize it and add your own voice!
