Welcome to Janet Thompson's page!Welcome to your Algebra I class! I want to help you succeed, and will do everything in my power to make that happen. My job is YOU! We are going to have lots of fun and learn a lot along the way. No matter where you’re starting, improvement is the goal.
Your success, however, ultimately depends upon you. Attitude is everything! It’s up to you to seek out help when you need it...whether that be with an algebra problem or concept, or with something else going on in your life.
Please take risks this year. It’s okay to make mistakes! We’ll celebrate them, because that’s how we get better, — not only in math, but in life!
