Ms. Nicole Hausleben » Welcome

Welcome

Welcome to 6th Grade! 
 
My name is Nicole Hausleben and this year I will be teaching mathematics to all three of the 6th grade classes.
 
In May of 2016, I graduated from Bloomsburg University with a Bachelor's Degree in Education and a Mathematics Certification 4-8. My student teaching was in a 6th grade classroom at Berwick Middle School. When I came back to New Jersey, I took the Praxis and received my K-8 certification with a Mathematics Certification 5-8. I have always wanted to be a teacher since I was a toddler and used to play teacher with my younger sister, Carly. It was not until my Junior year of High School that my teacher, Mrs. B, inspired me to focus on math. Now-a-days, a lot of students seem to dislike/be afraid of math, so I'm here to change that mindset. I am so happy to be teaching math this year and I hope that I can make your children love math as much as I do!
 
This year, I, along with my grade-level partners, will be preparing your children for the Middle School. Below is some helpful information about what to expect this upcoming school year. 
 
Homework: 

Homework will be given almost EVERY night of the week and will be due the following day. At the beginning of the trimester, you have a 100 as your homework grade. Each assignment that you do not complete will lower that score by 5 points. You will get a homework grade each month of the trimester. Homework is worth 10% of your overall grade. I will NOT accept late submissions or work that you completed but forgot at home. Only work that is in class on the due date will be graded.

 
Tests/Quizzes:

All tests and quizzes will be announced DAYS in advance to give you enough time to prepare. The date of the assessment may change due to unforeseen circumstances. Most assessments will be “in-class”, but some may be “open-book” or “take-home”. Tests are worth 50% and quizzes are worth 30% of your overall grade. Extra credit will be given periodically throughout the trimester. I will NOT give any “extra” extra credit to a student.

 
Make-Up Work:

When an absence(s) occurs, it is your responsibility to get ALL missed work on the day you return to school. You have one school day for every day that you are absent to make up assignments. [Ex: If you are absent Monday, you are to get your missed work on Tuesday when you return to school. Then, you must hand in that work by Wednesday when we meet for class that day.] If this work is not given in on time, you will not receive credit for it.

 

Chrome Books:
Chrome books must come to class charged daily. If your chrome book is not charged, you will be responsible for handwriting all material and/or completing that work at home. Charging your laptop will only be allowed during RISE and at recess/lunch. If you are not using your laptop for appropriate reasons, it will be taken away based upon the offense.
 

First offense: You will lose it for a DAY.

Second offense: You will lose it for a WEEK.

Third offense: You will lose it for a MONTH.

*After the third offense, the chrome book will be confiscated.*

 

Remind: 

Please join Remind by using the class code that was sent home with your child the first week of school. I will be sending messages out regarding your child's homework, projects, assignments, assessments, and any other events that will be taking place both in and outside of school. Since it is your child's last year in School 5 there will be a lot of activities throughout the year that we would love for everyone to take part in!
