• Ms. Klise

    Welcome to Ms. Klise's class!

    I'm a recent graduate of Southern Oregon University with a B.S. in Mathematics and a Master's degree in Teaching.  I'm passionate about learning, teaching, and having fun while doing so.  This is my third year teaching at South, but I'm not new to the school or district.  Two out of four of my kids were students at South and had some of the same teachers your kids have now.
    As a mom, I know how important it is to be able to contact my children's teachers quickly to get information, so as a teacher, I want to make sure that I'm available to parents and students if there are questions or concerns.  Clicking on my name will link you to my email, and I will make it a priority to respond as quickly as possible.  I'm also available before school Mondays and Fridays and at other times by appointment. 
     I am very excited about this school year.  We will be piloting new curriculumduring the first half of the school year. Students will be not be provided with a physical textbook; however, they will have access to significant online component, including a digital textbook and homework assignments. Students will be required to turn in a handwritten copy of assignments to receive credit. Within the online resource, there are several supports in place including videos, worked out examples and on occasion an online tutor. Go math Online - Go Math Online
    I'm looking forward to working with students in Math 7 and Math 8. I'm confident these students will be up for the challenge and will experience tremendous growth and confidence as we learn and explore important math concepts together.  So once again welcome and if you have any concerns feel free to send me an email.
    When you take risks you learn that there will be times when you succeed and there will be times when you fail, and both are equally important. - Ellen DeGeneres
