Hi there! I am very excited to teach 7th grade math at MJH again this year. I have a BS in Kinesiology and a minor in Mathematics from Sam Houston State University and I am currently pursuing my M.Ed. in Curriculum and Instruction from SHSU. This is my third year teaching 7th grade at MJH, I have also taught 8th grade math and algebra. My husband and I have an adorable baby girl, Charlie and three crazy dogs. I enjoy sports, hiking, running, cooking, traveling, movies, chocolate, minions, and puppies.

There are no summative (test grades) in the progress report grade. Quiz corrections can still be turned in until the end of this week (Friday Feb 2nd) but will not be reflected in the report card that comes out this week.

If a student did not turn in homework this week they received a 50.1. Usually homework is not weighted but due to the lack of effort and completion I have weighted the homework and will continue to do so. Homework is 3 problems a night and students may bring homework to tutorials in the morning for help or during lunch to the lunchtime success room.

Because progress reports are due between between a test and the opportunity to retest some progress report grades may be lower than expected but can be brought up with the retest this Friday Feb 2nd. If students miss the retest and have not spoken with me before that day, they will not be able to retest once the date passes.

Please email me with questions or concerns! Thanks! -Mrs. Trejo

I often have students (usually right before progress reports or report cards) come to me and say "Mrs. Trejo, do you have extra work I can do to raise my grade?" And the answer is always "no, sorry hun". I then remind the student of my policy for grades which I currently have posted in my room on my white board.

-Tests must be retaken in tutorials on the designated day (usually a Friday)

-In order to retest the student must attend a scheduled review tutorial before the test.

-Increasing test grades is the best way to maintain a high average since summative grades are weighted much more than formative grades.

-Low test grades will drag down your average, once the retest day passes, there is no way to raise a test grade.

-Graded papers that are handed back should be kept in their binder, students are responsible for keeping up with their work

-They may make DETAILED corrections (showing all work, writing a complete sentence conveying their understanding of the problem).

-They can make corrections at home or in tutorials, I am happy to help.

-Corrections should be done on a separate sheet of notebook paper and turned in with the original assignment. The quality of the corrections depend on how many points they will get back. (ie- well done corrections with good sentences will earn back most of the credit lost, corrections with only right answers circled will earn back no points.) Students only have to correct problems they missed, not the entire assignment.
