Mrs. Hurst's Website

WELCOME to my website.  I am Lorri Hurst and I will be teaching your child this year.  I am looking forward to working closely with you this year. I want you to know a little about me then I will give you information on where to find things in the website.  
I have been teaching at Burke County High School since 1993.  I have a dual MEd in Education with a concentration in Mathematics and Science.  This means I am qualified to teach BOTH mathematics and science.  I am also SPED certified.  This allows me to teach in a variety of ways to meet the learners needs.  I have taught many different classes in science and mathematics at Burke County High School.  
I have the attitude that rules are to be followed.  Therefore, I enforce all school rules as well as a few classroom rules of my own.  I do expect the students to come to class prepared.  It is important to learning each student come to class willing to learn.  In order to help prepare my students for the real world, deadlines matter.  
I also expect my students to learn to think and reason..
     -notebook with paper for notes--can be spiral, folder with paper or 3-ring style any are fine
     -pens and pencils
     -scientific calculator at home-An app downloaded on the phone will be super (calculators are provided for                   classroom use)
     -Pleasant Attitude!
GOOGLE Classroom
GOOGLE classroom will be utilized completely in class.  ALL assignments turned in will be done so through GOOGLE Classroom.  Each of my scheduled classes will have smaller learning communities so students have a learning community to support each other. 

I am available for tutoring EVERY morning from 7:00-7:30 AM and EVERY afternoon from 3:00-3:30 (or later) PM with 24 hours notice due to meetings.
