Welcome to 6th Grade Math

  • Parent-Teacher Conferences

    Posted by Benjamin Hsieh on 9/20/2019


    Conference sign-up is live on 9/23!  Conferences will take place on Wednesday, 10/9 and Thursday, 10/10. We will meet in D102. You can access the sign-up page through the RRMS website under the "Parents" tab by clicking "Conference Sign-Up".   

    Conferences will have two main components:  a meeting with the teacher and a student-led portion.  During the teacher meeting, we will review student progress and set goals for the upcoming year.  Students will then move to the hall and guide families through their learning portfolio and FamilyLink.

    Our 6th grade Curriculum Night will be from 6:30-8pm, Tuesday 9/10!  This is just a brief message, so you know what to expect.
    1. You will run through your 6th grader's entire schedule. We will have your class schedules available, though you may want to bring a copy.
    2. This event is designed for parents and teachers. If possible, please make other arrangements for your student.
    3. The purpose is to give an overview of curricula and classroom policies. If you have individual concerns about your student, let's follow up at another time. Parent-Teacher conferences will be right around the corner in October.
    We look forward to meeting you!

  • Welcome!

    When school starts up again, we be like...

    If you have found your way to this website, you probably have me as your 6th grade math teacher!  If not, you are either lost on the internet or extremely bored.  Anyway, who am I?  Let me introduce myself.

    This is my 21st year teaching.  That means I am old.  So, so very old.  It's alright because I act kind of immature and wear clothes that are too young for me.  I love teaching math and I like to do other stuff like eating potato chips, riding bikes, and playing Mario games.  

    Now, let’s talk a little bit about the last name. Though it looks like it may be pronounced like the sound of a samurai sword slicing effortlessly through the air, it is not nearly so cool. H‐S‐I‐E‐H is pronounced S‐H‐A‐Y. You know.  Rhymes with clay, Milky Way, soufflé, buffet ...

    Anyway, I just wanted to write you a letter welcoming you to math class. Thanks for reading this. I look forward to meeting all of you very soon!


    Mr. Hsieh
