Mr. Roger Thurman
Welcome! I am really looking forward to the 2019-20 school year. This year, the classes that I will be teaching are AP Calculus BC, AP Calculus AB and Pre-AP Precalculus. My goal with these classes is to prepare my students as well as I can for their University experience after high school. I hope and expect them to have a great learning experience on a day to day basis, and to come out with the tools that will help them be successful in their respective futures. I know that I have great students coming to me this year and hope we all have an entertaining learning experience this year.
MR THURMAN'S CLASS SCHEDULE
1st Period - Pre-AP Precalculus
2nd Period - Pre-AP Precalculus
3rd Period - AP Calculus AB
4th Period - AP Calculus BC
5th Period - AP Calculus AB
6th Period - LUNCH
7th Period - Pre-AP Precalculus
8th Period - Pre-AP Precalculus
9th Period - CONFERENCE PERIOD
My official conference times are Tuesday afternoons after school from 4:00 to 4:30, and Thursday mornings before school from 7:45 to 8:20. During those times, I will definitely be in my room if anyone needs extra help. However I want to emphasize that I am available other times by appointment. For instance, many Seniors have 9th period as an off period, and they are welcome to come into my class at that time for tutorials or retests or any other help that they might need. Before and after school, I will be available any days except Fridays (I have duty before and after school on Fridays). To make an appointment, all a student has to do is ask if they can come in. Then I will make sure to be in my room rather than doing something else on campus. The only times that I would say no to a student would be if I already had a meeting scheduled , or if I needed to leave for a personal reason. These both happen infrequently. I want my students and the parents of my students to know that I hope that they have great success this year, and that I am willing to put in the time to achieve that success.
