Ms. Bright's Math Class

Greetings and welcome to my website! This school year, 2012 – 2013, is my 5th year teaching at Double Churches Middle School in Columbus, GA. Before teaching I worked in a school setting for over 15 years, as a secretary, office clerk, and bookkeeper, so I’ve seen how valuable education is and how incredibly devoted the majority of faculty and staff are to our students in public education.

My own children have been my motivating factor for me to be a life-long learner. I have a 26 year-old son, a 23 year-old daughter, an 11 year-old daughter and an 18 month old granddaughter. My 11 year-old and I share our home with my husband, one cute dog, and one cool cat. My favorite thing to do other than spend time with my family and friends is gardening. I especially love to garden vegetables. The feeling of planting seeds, watching them grow, and eating what you’ve sown, is a feeling of pride and comfort for me.

I teach 6th and 7th grade math in an inclusion and a small-group classroom, as well as one earth science and skills class. Last school year I found a way to bring my love of gardening to the classroom. The students and I created a math garden right outside my window. We built four raised planting beds in geometric shapes and added a pathway which can be used as an x-axis and y-axis on a coordinate grid. It’s beautiful and the students are more engaged with hands-on activities then they are sitting in the classroom.

This website will provide important links to school and classroom information, as well as links for online learning, tutoring, and activities that will enhance math skills. Enjoy!
