Ms. Barbara Hosey
Welcome to Biloxi Upper Elementary School! I am very excited and ready to begin working and learning with you and your child. I am currently a 6th grade math teacher here at the Upper Elem. This is my 28th year of teaching. I have taught in Biloxi Schools for 24 years. Most of those years have been teaching math. As you might guess, math is my favorite subject! One of my main goals for my students is to make it be their favorite subject too.
I am looking forward to a productive and successful school year; hence, there are several items that will bolster your child's experience in 6th grade Math. First, I believe that a structured classroom setting with an assertive discipline plan is essential for a productive learning environment; therefore, I have implemented classroom rules and consequences according to the school-wide discipline plan. Next, communication is extremely important for the success of your child. Please keep me informed with the most up-to-date information, so as to facilitate an open line of communication regarding your child's performance both academically and behaviorally. Lastly, the sixth grade math department teachers believe strongly that homework is an essential key to mastery of skills. As with any skill in life, in order to be successful, it requires continued practice. Please discuss this important matter with your child and expect daily homework for my class.
I look forward to working with you and your child throughout the school year to master sixth grade math standards. Please feel free to contact me with any questions or concerns. I am always readily available to help!
