    Hyperlink to My Main Webpage: http://mlgibbons.pbworks.com *** This is the webpage I have used for several years. With remote learning it's likely that we will just use our Google Classroom.

    Each Class Page on my original webpage contains:

    • Daily Activities (via PowerPoint) *** To view my PowerPoint Presentations, students will need to be on a PC with Office.
    • Assigned Homework (and Homework Solutions)
    • Handouts
    • An opportunity to review previous material
    • A glimpse at what's on the horizon *** My goal for remote learning is to have easier access to this material via Google Classroom.

    Professional Biography 

    Education: 

    • HS Diploma, 1980 Ilwaco HS
    • B.S. in Education (Endorsed in Secondary Mathematics & Driver's Education), 1987 University of Portland
    • M.Ed in Education Leadership, 1992 University of Portland

    Profession: I've been teaching for 32 years. Started teaching in 1987 as a "Substitute Teacher" in the Evergreen School District. Also coached 9th grade football at Cascade Junior High. After getting married in 1989, took a job at Nisqually Middle School in North Thurston Public Schools. Taught for 12 years at both Nisqually Middle School and River Ridge High School. Coached Football, Basketball, Wrestling and Golf. In 2001 took a position in the Tumwater School District at Black Hills HS as a mathematics teacher and football coach.

    Goals: The Math Department at Black Hills offers many interventions including a Math Help Center and before/after school tutelage.  I'm hoping my webpage may become another part of our Pyramid of Interventions.

    If you look at my resume (hyperlink below), you'll see one of my goals is the integration of technology and the math curriculum. Creating lessons on PowerPoint has been one of my attempts at said integration. I've always wanted students to have access to lessons when they are away from the classroom. I'm hoping this webpage offers such access and becomes another intervention for students.
