Mountview Middle School
6th Grade Math -- Blue Team
I am very pleased to be here at Mountview Middle School teaching sixth grade
Math. I grew up on the South Shore of Massachusetts and graduated from the
University of Massachusetts at Amherst with a degree in Business
Administration. While working in a math-related profession in the high tech
industry for several years, I continued my education, obtaining a Masters in
Business Administration from Clark University in Worcester. Later, I
decided to utilize my math skills as an educator, earning my second
Masters degree in Education from Lesley University. By combining my previous
work experience in the business world with my middle school math teaching
background, I aim to provide a rich, real-life math experience for Holden’s
sixth graders. I love Math and hope to instill that same passion in my sixth
grade students. I once lived in Holden for a few years, but now my family
lives in Sterling.
Favorite student quote: Sometime in October, one of my students
commented, “Mrs. Lawrence, you really want us to learn Math this year, don’t
you!?” This remark made me realize that, very early in the school year, my
students understood how committed I am to their learning and success in Math.
-- To be sure that this year's math experiences are enjoyable and promote a
firm understanding of mathematics.
-- To help students gain confidence in their math skills, understand the
significance of putting these skills to use in today’s world (and in the
future), and have fun in the learning process.
