Welcome to Mr. Huff's class! I'm happy that you are here!
Please go to Schoology. Please have your student click on their Science and Language and Literature classes, as well as their calendars, to view assignments and links.
Have students check through their classes in IC on a weekly basis to look at grades they have earned, as well as checking for missing assignments. This is a great activity for parents to do with the student at home. It is a great conversation starter and a good way to help your child stay accountable.
I am no longer using this calendar or site for current classroom assignments or activities. My professional goals below are still current, and are for your information.
My professional goals:
*I believe in getting to know each student personally- relationships are a priority for me. My goal is that each child feels comfortable, and that students know that I am someone that cares about them.
*To enable students to grow in their critical thinking abilities.
*To guide students to be inquirers, filled with wonder and curiosity about the natural world.
*To help students learn to express their thoughts verbally and in written form in a clear, detailed way.
*I believe in learning experientially through hands-on, minds-on investigations/experiments, teacher modeling, participation, movement, and student choice.
*To help students gain interest in scientific and literary careers.
*I believe that the classroom should be a fun place, so I build an atmosphere that fits the middle school mind: fun, a bit zany, and active. High academic standards and quiet, reflective work are a big part of the class as well.
