Welcome!Name: Mr. Tom Harrison,
I graduated from West Valley (Fairbanks, AK) in 1991 and earned a double major in Math and Physics from the University of Puget Sound (Tacoma, WA) in 1995. Shortly thereafter I rounded out my teacher credentials with a Masters of Arts in Teaching from University of Alaska Southeast. I'm a complete math/science geek but also enjoy hacky sack, foosball, soccer, and fishing. I'm also passionate about using my geometry skills in residential construction. I love my job and believe that public education is a powerful thing. Su Valley is a fantastic school and I am happy and thankful to be part of the team. Please monitor academic progress online and contact me through the email address above if you have any questions. Thanks for checking in.
*Notes for 2020-2021 School Year:
Class pacing and curriculum will mirror the Apex program, per district mandate. The hyperlinks in the table below show the concepts to be covered.
In-school students will often do projects or text problems different from Apex work.
In-school Math grades will be entered in Synergy in the following categories, with the indicated weights:
- Apex Assessments (quizzes and CSTs) - 60%
- Classwork/Homework - 25%
- Positive Participation - 15%
Online office hours for in-school kids (Fridays): 1:00 - 3:30
The at-home students will be following the Apex curriculum very closely, with pacing and deadlines already cascaded through the courses for the semester. Their grades will be calculated with the point totals outlined in Apex and will be pushed into Synergy only during midquarter and quarter posting times.
Online office hours for at-home kids (1:15 - 2:00 Mon - Fri, B weeks only)
Please be patient as we work together to provide the best learning experiences possible.Class Schedule
