## Mr. Mazon’s 8th Grade Math, Algebra 1 and Geometry Class

**Welcome to Hoover Middle School!**

For those of you who are new to Hoover, I especially welcome you and look forward to working with you to make this a very successful and enjoyable class for your child. Eight grade is an exciting time with high school just around the corner. Algebra 1 and Geometry are high school equivalent class and in some ways more challenging than those offered in high school. The learning of math is developmental with one skill building on the next. It is necessary for your child to keep up with his/her work and must always come to class with the completed homework and all materials needed to learn. I would like to take this opportunity to introduce myself and tell you a little about what we’ll be doing in class for this school year. My name is Elizalde Mazon and I have been in the teaching profession for more than twenty years. I’m so glad to be part of the Hoover family for eight years now and very pleased to be your child’s teacher in Math.
