Ms. N. Douglas, Math

Hello My Name Is...

<Miss N'kiesha Douglas>

 

I am Miss N’kiesha Douglas one of the three math teachers for the eighth grade team here at Eddie White K-8 Academy. This is my second year here at Eddie White but my eleventh year teaching. Before teaching here I taught one year in the United Arab Emirates (Middle East) at Al Maha Girls School and eight years at Hapeville Charter Middle school in Fulton County. My education includes an Associate Degree from Atlanta Metropolitan College, a bachelor degree from Clayton State University and a master’s degree from Grand Canyon University.

                I love being a teacher and I really enjoy teaching math. I am very passionate about shaping the minds of the youth, I feel it is a great honor that I take seriously. I believe that every student can learn if they work hard and apply themselves. In my class all students are encourage to ask questions and be an active learner.

                My Motto: “You get out of this class what you put in the class. If you want a good grade you have to earn that grade, I believe in giving you what you deserve!” Not only is this a lesson for my class but a life lesson that every student needs to learn to be successful. If there is one thing I want students to take away from my class (besides the skills I teach) is how to know when to ask for help.  In the words of Albert Einstein, “education is not the learning of facts but training of the mind to think.”

            Your child cannot be successful without a joint, collaborative partnership between you and me.  I want your child to be successful and promise to provide a safe, orderly, respectful, and challenging learning environment.  I will offer tutorial services on Wednesday beginning in September. Please periodically check our class website on Edmodo to keep up to date about our assignments and Infinite Campus to keep track of grades.  It really does take a village to ensure the success of our students.

            The test schedule for this year is the GMAS, it requires far more critical thinking and students are required to explain how and why they are solving math problems. To prepare for this test, your child will be doing more writing and reading in math.  They will have to write complete paragraphs to explain processes.  Please ensure your child is reading, writing, and completing homework assignments as this will help them on the test.  

                Parents and student I am excited about this school year and eager to teach mathematics.   Remember that math is learned through repeated practice and hard work. Let's share the experience of ensuring our students succeed in 8th grade mathematics!
