8th Grade Algebra

My name is Paula Wiederhold - my students call me "Ms. W."  I am truly excited about the upcoming year .  In this, my sixth year at Andersen, I will be teaching Algebra to eighth graders.  As the mother of two toddlers ( ages three & four), my life outside of school is a whirlwind of activity.  My husband and I have been truly blessed.  

My goal for my students is simple - to show them that they CAN do grade level mathematics and each of them will BE READY to succeed in high school and beyond.   Parents can assist me in this effort by using positive language when speaking about math - "try every problem" "you can do this!"   Students will  be asked to complete homework Monday - Thursday.  Practice is the key to deepening math understanding and uncovering errors early enough to fix them. 

My door is "always open".  8th graders can come for extra help during the week on Wednesdays during advisory, Thursdays after school, or by appointment.  We will work together to achieve proficiency and excellence.

Please feel free to contact me at any time through the main office 668-4250  or via email  paula.wiederhold@mpls.k12.mn.us
