Hello Students and Parents and welcome to my teacher page!
For those parents that I have not had the pleasure of meeting yet,
my name is Mr.Risch and I am one of two 6th Grade math teachers
at Carr Lane. As we prepare for an unprecedented school year,
I want you to know that I am a resource as we
work together to make sure your student receives an excellent education.
To make sure I teach your 6th grade student, I teach the following homerooms:
Mr. Risch (mine)
Ms. Kosinski (ELA)
Mr. Dillard (Social Studies)
I will post all homework on Tyler SIS (my online gradebook). Students will turn in
their homework assignments the following day. If you or any of you have questions
or need help with the assignments, you can reach me at firstname.lastname@example.org! Please
let me know if there is anything I can do to help, we are all in this together. I cannot
wait to get to know all of your children!
