    Welcome 6th graders!

    My name is Ms. Michelle Bernard. I will be your math teacher for the 2019-2020 school year. This will be my ninth year teaching 6th grade math. Before that, I taught 5th grade here at Power Ranch for 4 years.  For those of you that don’t know me from seeing me in the 5th grade/6th grade hallway or from popping into your 5th grade classroom last year, I look forward to getting to know you this year.

    To tell you a little more about me, I was born and raised in Michigan.  I graduated from the University of Michigan (Go Blue!).  I am still a huge U of M fan.  I love math. I love teaching new concepts and playing around with numbers. I still remember my teachers from when I was in school that taught me that math was more than just numbers and shapes; there is a whole world to explore!

    From adding, subtracting, multiplying and dividing fractions to writing and solving equations, we cover a lot of cool concepts! 

    I look forward to exploring the world of math with you this year. I can’t wait to meet you! Enjoy the rest of your summer!

    See you at Meet the Teacher Night!
