• Dear Parents/Guardians:

    My name is Linda Williamson.  I received my undergraduate degree at Rowan University.    I have a Masters in K-12 Technology which I received from Nova Southeastern University. 

    I am a special educator at Cumberland Regional High School.  This school year I am pleased to say I am working with the Math department.  I will work alongside Ms. Lupchinsky first block and we will be teaching Algebra 2.   Second block I will be on Prep. Third block I will be back with Ms. Lupchinsky teaching Geometry.    Fourth block I will be with Mr. Severino and we shall teach Algebra 1.  Each teacher has his or her own unique teaching style, which very successfully meets the needs of all of our students.  I am extremely proud and pleased to be working along side of each one. 

    If you have any questions, I may be reached by email at: williamson@crhsd.org   I may also be reached by telephone at 856-451-9400 ext. 308.   Email is the fastest way to contact me, but I try to check my phone messages daily.

    I look forward to a very exciting and academic semester with your student.

    Thank You,
    Linda Williamson


  • I co-teach this class with Ms. Julie  Lupchinsky .  It is 3rd block in room A108.

         3.  Go directly to your seat. (Once in the room, no leaving)

         4.   Materials out on the desk and bags (purses) on the floor.

         5.  Begin working quietly.  (No voices I can distinguish.)

         3.  Remain quiet. (NO TALKING!)

         4.  Only questions regarding instructions will be answered during a test or quiz.


    End of Class
     

    1.  Put all any supplies or equipment away. 

    2.  Clean up your area, including the floor.

    3.  You must be in a seat until the bell rings.  No one leaves unless everyone is in a seat.

    4.  This is the only time you may be on your phones.

     

    When leaving the classroom

    • You must sign out/in noting the location and time.

     

    Lateness 

         1.  Sign in by the door.

         2.  Go to your seat

         3.  Get into the lesson

     

    Students should be on time every day. The consequence for being late is in the CRHS student handbook.

    1 late – talk to student

    2 lates – talk to parents

    3 lates - letter home

    6 lates - referral to principal

    9, 12, etc. lates - referral to principal

     

    Absences

    Students are responsible for completing all make-up work, this includes getting the notes from another student. Make up work can be found in the file on the bulletin board labeled with your block. Make sure you hand in your make-up work as soon as possible so not to forget. When you are absent, you will receive a zero for a grade until you hand in your work.  Your grade will change as soon as the work is submitted.  **Tests and quizzes will be made up during lunch or SERA. Help is also available at this time. ** 

    ² Remember…if you are having problems with the material or have questions, it is your responsibility to come to me.  You can send me a remind message, email me, or come to me personally. 

     

    Lavatory breaks

    Students may leave for the lavatory when there is no formal instruction going on. (examples: while working on classwork or putting problems on the board, etc.) Every student should sign out when they leave and then sign in when they return.  Only one boy and one girl are allowed to leave at a time. No one should take more than 5 minutes to use the lavatory.  Abusing this privilege will result in not being allowed out of class.

     

    Calculator Policy 

    We will be using the TI-83 Plus in class.  Every student will be assigned a calculator with a number. This is your calculator.You are responsible for any damage to or any inappropriate material on that calculator. This will more than likely result in a fine card. 

    All calculators will be collected 5 minutes before the bell rings and the class does not leave the room until all the calculators are accounted for.
