Welcome Everyone!

Hi Everyone, Thanks for visiting my page. A bit about me...I have been teaching in one way or another for sixteen years. This is my ninth year at Gorzycki Middle School. I have one other year of public school experience from Alpine, TX. All of my other experience stems from private tutoring, online tutoring, and online teaching. I have a Bachelor's Degree in Mechanical Engineering, and a Master's Degree in Education. I have three children, all boys. Their names and ages are Nathan (17), Owen (14), and Eli (9). All three boys are active in sports. They all play baseball. My favorite thing in the world is to see the smile on their faces when they have completed something they are proud of. I love reading, so much I usually stay up too late with my book! I also love spending time outside.

Tutoring is scheduled on Wednesdays and Fridays during the second half of class.  If additional tutoring is required, we will talk about it on a case by case basis.
 
All homework assignments will be in our BLEND class.  Students WILL NOT receive paper copies of assignments.  You may choose to print assignments at home or just do them on a separate piece of paper. 

If you need to contact me, email is best christy.moore@austinisd.org as I check it most often. My phone number is (512)841-8758, but please keep in mind I am teaching most of the day so please leave a voicemail. However you contact me, please allow me up to 24 hours to return your message so I may accommodate everyone.

Advanced Math Policy

The Advanced Math Curriculum is designed to give students the opportunity to take high school credit classes while still in middle school.
  • Students on the Algebra Pathway will be learning material that is 1 year ahead of their current grade level by the time they are in 7thgrade.
  • Students on the Geometry Pathway will be learning material that is 2 years ahead of their current grade level by the time they are in 7thgrade.
In order to meet the expectations of the Advanced Math Curriculum, the student is expected to maintain a Six-Weeks Average of an 80 or higher.
  • On the Algebra Pathway, a student that does not meet this expectation at the end of a six-weeks grading period will be placed on academic probation. If they do not meet the expectation at the end of another six-weeks grading period, the student’s math teacher will recommend that the student be moved into a grade-level Pre-AP course.
  • On the Geometry Pathway, a student that does not meet this expectation at the end of a six-weeks grading period will be placed on academic probation. They will then be re-evaluated every 3 weeks. If they do not meet the expectation during each of these evaluations, the student’s math teacher will recommend that the student be moved into an Advanced Math class on the Algebra Pathway.

Hi Friends, 

I want to make sure my students have what they need to succeed, so I just created a DonorsChoose.org classroom project request. Click the link below to see what my students and I are up to:

Standing Desks for Flexible Seating

Early contributions are critical, and any amount helps. Thank you so much for taking a look and considering a donation. I am so excited to bring this project to life!

With gratitude,
Mrs. Moore
