Hello! I am Mrs. Jessica Gabbard and I teach Title 1 Math in 3rd, 4th, and 5th grades. I am also the GT teacher and the UIL coordinator. I have been teaching in Elkhart since 2009. I am married and have two children who attend Elkhart Intermediate.
Your child will be learning many new skills this year and they will be expanding on previous knowledge from previous years. One of my main goals is to prepare your child for the STAAR test. I hope to accomplish this through exploring, observing, and engaging math lessons.
We will also be using various textbooks: Motivation Math, Envision, and Forde Ferrier. Each of these books is structured in a way that will expose your child to STAAR formatted questions and help your child be successful on the STAAR test.
I look forward to teaching your child. Please feel free to contact me at any time with questions.
Parents: I have uploaded the Math Packet for March 24-27. Please look under posts if you would like to access these online.
