Mrs. Valerie Buckland

I am currently teaching 6th Grade Math and 6th grade Pre-Ap Math.  I will be teaching 7tb grade as we begin the 2nd nine weeks. I have completed 29 years in education and I have been here at HBMS since 1997.   I have taught 6th and 7th grade math as well as assisted with 8th grade math classes in my teaching career.

I enjoy helping students and try to incorporate different strategies in my classes. I want to give the students as many options and strategies for solving problems.

As we navigate through 2020-2021, we will be faced with many changes and challenges. I hope to help our students and school face them head-on and be successful in all that we do. 

I offer tutorials every week to assist students in need.  This year we are going to focus on justifying mathematical ideas-that means we need students to participate and communicate their thinking.  That also means asking questions when they don't understand.  We are also going to work on student ownership and feeback- teacher, peer, and self.

About me: I have 3 kids and am happily married.  My kids are currently in college and/or working. I enjoy doing activities with my family as well as movie time at home. I always am looking for the best deal, too. This helps me when I teach the percent unit (sale price and tax).
