Instructional Spotlight:
Mr. Mathis

Mr. Mathis is beginning his 4th year here at Liberty Middle.  He teaches language arts, yearbook, and sponsors Men of Destiny.  He loves to evoke deep and thoughtful discussion from his students, and often uses the Socratic Method as a strategy.  Connect in room 104 with Mr. Mathis to learn how this strategy can work for you!

Surplus of Strategies!

In need of some strategy SOS?  Mrs. Tumminello graciously shared her online strategy toolkit from ARI!  This is a go-to for any strategic teacher!  Click here to access the PDF file.
