Welcome to our virtual classroom!
What an exciting year this is going to be! My name is Señor Martínez, and I feel incredibly blessed to be part of the St. Brendan community, and to be your math teacher. I am committed to doing all I can to ensure you have a successful year.
We all learn in different ways!
Some of us better remember a concept when we hear its explanation in class, whereas some of us benefit more from watching a video or using any visual materials with the same information. Some of us learn more effectively when writing things down (some of us even doodle during class!), and the opposite is also true: for some of us, keeping up with the writing down of the notes is distracting and stressful, and so we find it best not to write anything down. Because you and I both want YOU to do well, I encourage you to do WHATEVER IS MOST EFFECTIVE for you.
If you haven't heard me say it yet, here is the ONE THING I know benefits all of us the same, regardless of how we learn:
PRACTICE, PRACTICE, PRACTICE!
