Ms. Athena Herman
This is my first year at CHS and also my very first year as a teacher. I am teaching Math One and Math One Lab for the next year. I graduated from Boise State University last Decmeber with my B.S. in Mathematics with an emphasis in secondary education and three minors including dance, chemistry, and physical science. In my free time you might see me at a BSU football game, a blowing glass, traveling abroad (I am visiting Vietnam this winter break), hitting up a $5 movie on Tuesdays, paddling the Boise River on my SUP, or enjoying a cup of tea while grading in Downtown Boise.
I am so looking forward to this year and can't wait to grow alongside all my students. Teaching has been my dream since I was 5 years old, so this year is a complete gift. If you are looking for any classroom information you can probably find it through the class links to the left.
If you have any questions feel free to contact me in whatever way you see fit.
The last week of Chapter 2 retakes are upon us! Make sure you come and see me to retake before the end of the day on November 22nd
We have our Chapter 3 exam coming up next week on Thursday, November 21st and Friday, November 22nd. Be sure to have your note card ready to go! There is a good example on the Math One page under the Chapter 3 Section.
What's the Pocket Point?
Parents and students,
I am currently piloting a new technology in all of my math classes to help try and keep students off their phones during the school day. Students are able to download an app called "Pocket Points" on their phones and the app keeps track of how long they are off their phones during class. By doing this students are able to rack up points and turn them in for incentives like candy, homework passes, tardy passes, classroom parties, and other things. They also are able to gain points to exchange for discounts at local and online vendors. I use my points to get smoothies and tea downtown all the time.
