Mr. Mitchell's Webpage
Welcome to my website for my classes at Rogers Middle School! This is my 11th year teaching middle school, between 5th and 6th grade, and almost 16 years in education total! I am married and have one daughter who attends one of the amazing Pearland schools in the district! I have a Bachelor's degree from University of Houston-Dowtown and also a Master's degree in Education Leadership from the University of St. Thomas. In my spare time, I like sports, to work out, to build LEGOs, and to read. I've taught grades from elementary, to middle school, and even up to the junior high level. I love my middle school students and their individual, unique perspectives on they bring to my classes in both subjects I teach. I like to be very creative, hands-on, and learn by doing so that's why I love teaching Science and how collaborative and thought-provoking labs and experiments bring out creative ideas, interesting thoughts, and inquisitive minds to become HEROES WHO COMPLETE MY ASSIGNMENTS!
I teach 5th grade Science on TEAM 5T, who will all BE HEROES IN THE MAKING! This website will give you valuable resources to assist you in my classroom, as well as give you information on grading, tutorials and my conference times. The tab for class calendar will update for important days when major grades are being taken. There is also a tab for QUICK LINKS which lists websites to review content (as well as other content areas) such as games, videos, and other links.
My conference time is
8:45-9:20 Monday - Friday
(Please try to schedule by email or phone
at least 2 days ahead if possible)
Parent and Student Information
Folders will be sent home every Thursday with important information such as graded work, work that needs corrections, accolades, and conduct cards. Conduct cards must be signed and returned NO LATER than Friday the same week.
Parents please remember to check SKYWARD to keep updated on the grades your child is receiving. We have shown all our students how to check SKYWARD themselves so they may stay on top of their work while becoming more independent.
If a student is absent, it is the student's responsibility to get absent work, activities, notes, or tests from the teacher or designated folder in the classroom.
Mondays after school (4:15-4:45)
WEEKLY CHECK IN for CLASS
This week in Science we are finishing up with Uses of Energy - taking a Common Assessment on Wednesday this week. Please study your notebook vocabulary and notes we have done in class the past week over ENERGY. We will begin with our Circuits unit on Thursday.
