Janelle Tittsworth

Hello! My name is Janelle Tittsworth, but the students usually refer to me as Mrs. T.  This is my 4th year at AMS and 20th year education.  I spent my first seven years teaching math at Valley Center Middle School, where I also coached middle school track and high school basketball.  I transferred to the Andover district in 2007.  I taught math at ACMS for another six years before going into administration.  I was the assistant principal and athletic director at ACMS from 2013-2016.  Managing all the evening activities limited my time with my family, so I chose to return to the classroom and teach again.  I was blessed to have the opportunity to return to a teaching role in this district.  I am thrilled to continue my passion for teaching here at Andover Middle School.

I teach all the Math 6 Accelerated courses, and two Math 7 courses.

Overall MATH grades are weighted: 30% (daily homework) + 70% (quizzes, tests, projects).

    • Steps to complete online HW:
      1. www.bigideasmath.com
      2. Login with ClassLink
      3. Log in with Google  (On home devices, students need to include their whole school email address: lastnamefirstinitial@students.usd385.org.  The @students.usd385.org part is not necessary to type at school so new students and some returning may not realize this at home.)

How are we graded?

  • Practice work (homework) counts as 30% of the overall grade. 
  • Assessments (tests/quizzes) count as 70% of the overall grade.
  • Projects vary in their weight, depending on the complexity of the tasks.

What about late work, re-dos, and test retakes?

  • Homework corrections (redo’s) and late homework assignments are accepted prior to the chapter test. 
    • Students must earn less than an 80% in order to redo/correct homework.
    • Students may earn a maximum score of 80% on a redo/late assignment.
    • If an assignment is turned in late, students will be deducted 20% from the grade earned.
    • Students are responsible for seeking help if needed. 
  • Quiz/Test retakes/corrections are handled on a case-by-case basis. 
    • It is the student’s responsibility to visit with the teacher.
    • Per 6th grade math policy, the maximum score you may earn is 80%.

What do we do if we are absent?

  • Students must refer to Mrs. T’s website to access daily lesson plans and homework.
  • The student handbook states the school policy and timeline regarding absent work.
