Math Rules! #smartertogether

My name is Beth Lescenski and I am so pleased to have joined the Justice Page (Ramsey) Middle School staff in June of 2015 as a 6th (and 7th) grade math teacher! 2017-2018 is my 13th year of teaching after earning my credentials at the Unversity of MN - Duluth, go Bulldogs! This year I'll be teaching Algebra 8, but only part time in the mornings Monday - Friday. Email will be the best way to contact me outside of my designated school hours.

What is most important to me is that I truly believe that ALL students can achieve high levels in math, regardless of where they are currently. With a growth mindset, plenty of trial and error (mistakes are a really important part of the learning process) and persistence, students will see their hard work pay off. In my class, students will not only learn math, but they will learn how their brain functions, how we learn and how to live in a growth mindset. Most of all, I really want students to love math, see its connections in our world and believe that they can be successful. Students are already smart, they come to school to learn, be challenged and help each other become smarter. Youcubed.org has the most up-to-date information on quality math education, take some time to review what's there. Click here for their parent page. 

I'm so glad to be a part of the Page community and I want to make a difference for each one of my students and their family. I hope we can all collaborate so that each student does their very best work. #smartertogether

I am delighted when I hear from parents and students. Email is the quickest and simplest way to get ahold of me at any time of day.
