Ms. Gaines' 2015-2016

Middle School LAA 1 and High School Applied Math 1 Classes          

 Hello!  I hope everyone had an exciting Holiday!  I'm happy that you are visiting our class webpage.  I am very excited and enthusiastic about the 2016 school  year.  I am delighted to welcome you to the LSD Middle School LAA 1 and High School Math 1 classes. It's hard to believe that we have already complete half of the year.  It is now 2016 and it has been a very productive school year so far.  We've had a wonderful year of exciting activities and lessons.  We are still using the Common Core Extended Standards and the Unique Program. 


The 8th graders are learning a variety of skills (benchmarks, checkpoints and lessons) within the Unique program and the 9th graders are learning number sense, number systems, computation, algebra, measurement, and problem solving of real life word problems.  This course incorporates mathematical language and vocabulary to encourage a deeper understanding of mathematical ------- math. The students are also participating  in the Vocational PAES lab this year.


 Please encourage your child to read and write as often as he or she can. And as always, it is a great privilege and responsibility to be one of your child's teacher this year.  If you should have any questions or concerns, please do not hesitate to contact me by phone or email at (225) 769-8160 ext. 273 or email me at     



Each 9-weeks grade/progress report will be sent home 



A good grade cannot be earned without both studying for test and completing assigned work.
