Mr. Thomas

Hello Bobcats!

I hope everyone is safe and healthy! Please maintain social distancing when you are in a public place, wash your hands, use drive-thru shopping, and don't make your parents' life miserable! Be thankful!

I miss you all and hope to see you all again in person!

DISTANCE LEARNING

Welcome to eLearning/ Distance online Learning.  Keep reading and see below for details about eLearning.

A Few quick things about eLearning:

1)  If you need help or have questions, please feel free to email me at thomasja@pearlandisd.org or text me on Remind.

2) I will check and answer emails throughout the day.  You can email anytime between 8:00 am - 8:00 pm. 

If I don't answer right away, please be patient, I may be helping someone else or I'm in a meeting!

3) Remember that things may change as we go.  Please check Canvas and Remind for all updates.

4) I'm planning on live student meetings on Microsoft Teams from Office 365 to keep things a little bit more professional, compared to Zoom.

Student Meetings will be on Tuesday 10AM and Friday 10 AM

===============================  

Welcome to Berry Miller Jr High!

 

I was born in South India but grew up in Mumbai. I've been a Math tutor (Coach T / Mr. T) for more than 20 years  and many of my students are engineers, sailors, salesmen, businessmen, realtors, teachers, etc. I moved to the United States of America in 2003 and received my Bachelors in Education. Last January, my family situations changed and I enjoyed a busy summer to be a licensed Realtor!

I've been teaching in Pearland ISD since 2014. I'm a proud recipient of the 2012 President's Volunteer Service Award for volunteering more than 200 hours at SFASU. I love taking pictures and traveling! I used to play cricket and kabaddi back in the day but now I'm a big fan of American sports! I love baseball, basketball and football but I'm a proud Houston Texans fan!    Video: Message from UNICEF

    Following materials are crucial components of your organized Math Notebook:

    1. Selective textbook pages (consumable).
    2. Notes handwritten in class (major chunk of the notebook grade)
    3. Foldables
    4. Homework assignments (work shown all the time)
    5. Graded papers 
    6. Miscellaneous (STAAR reference chart, square & sq. roots chart, etc.) 

    EXPECT RANDOM ISN CHECKS FOR A MAJOR GRADE (Grade Booster Easy 100; you snooze, you lose!)
