About Jamie Stack...
Position: 6th grade
Welcome to our 6th grade Math Thinking Classroom. In this space, each student will see themselves as a math person, become a risk taker, and grow as a mathematician a safe space.
My Education and Professional Background
I began my teaching career with CUSD in 2006 after graduating from ASU with a Bachelor's of Science in Elementary Education degree. I have a Masters of Education degree in Curriculum and Instruction from NAU. I also have a K-8 Middle Grade Math Endorsement, a Gifted Endorsement, experience with Title 1 (K-6th) and gifted education (5th-6th). I am a part of the Arizona Mathematics Partnership and an NCTM member. I am a lifelong learner and continue my professional education every chance I get!
My Educational Philosophy
I believe that everyone can develop a mathematical mindset and that all students have unlimited potential to become innovative thinkers and problem solvers. In our math class, we honor various ways of thinking, celebrate the power of mistakes, and find the beauty, creativity, and connections in the mathematics all around us.
