Role at Global Arts Plus Upper: 7th Mathematics Teacher
Years at Global Arts Plus Upper: 5
Hello. My name is LeeAnne Garhofer. This is my fifth year at GAP U. I am the seventh-grade pre-algebra math teacher! I have been teaching for 17 years. I have a wonderful husband, Dan and four children. I enjoy walking, biking, gardening, photography, and spending time with family and friends.
In Pre-Algebra, students study a wide variety of mathematical topics. These include working with integers and rational numbers, collecting and analyzing data, using algebraic reasoning, and many more. Students develop their mathematical skills through a variety of activities, many of which include working with other students to solve problems collaboratively.
Foundations is a class in which students learn skills that will benefit them in and out of school. We explore strategies for studying, homework, organization, and goal-setting. Additionally, students also learn more about responsibility, perseverance, citizenship, and other character traits.
This year, I will also teach 8th Grade AVID, a college readiness elective class.
