    "Education is the passport to the future, for tomorrow belongs to those who prepare for it today." - Malcolm X
    "Education is not the learning of facts, but the training of the mind to think!" - Albert Einstein
    Hello! My name is Mrs. Shumaker and I teach Grade 8 Math, Algebra, and Geometry. I encourage an open classroom, inquisitive atmosphere, and peer tutoring. I believe that every student has the potential to be successful in Math with the right encouragement and guidance, and I strive to provide exactly that in my classroom every day. 
    For electronic copies of the Module books and other handouts used in class, just visit the page for your class!
    If you find yourself struggling understanding a lesson or completing your homework, visit YouTube and search for the lesson you need help with - there are videos of nearly every lesson available for you to watch for further understanding or to re-explain!
