• Hello!  My name is Mr. Cole and I teach Geometry.  I am an alumni of MSA and graduate of USFSP in education.  
    I have an obsession with rock climbing, mountain biking, martial arts, and I love all kinds of dancing.
    This is my third year of teaching here and I am excited to help you all grow!  
     
    Parents:
    If you are wondering what your child will need for my class or how my class will be generally set up, please take a look at my syllabus found here.
    Also, if you could fill out this quick contact form after reading through the whole syllabus I would greatly appreciate it!  I can also send this info to our school so it can be updated for all teachers to see on our gradebooks if you would like!
     
    All of my assignments can be found online so please make sure your child is signed into Google Classroom and Khan Academy!
    (This will be done the first week of school in class, but if you miss the first week you should talk with me on how to get it done if the directions here confuse you!)
    There are in depth instructions on the left, but you will need to know your child's ID# for Google Classroom (this number is in the bottom left of their ID cards)
    Google classroom also has a shared folder for their class holding all of the make up binder work if they miss a day!
     
    My tutoring schedule is as follows: 
    Please click here to sign up for any tutoring!
    Monday/Wednesday: 4:35-5:35pm (wait outside of my classroom)
    Tuesday/Thursday: 8:30-9am (wait at cafeteria)
    Tuesday/Thursday: Brain Break Tutoring 
     
    For the brain break tutoring times, your child will need to speak with me ahead of time (or sign in above) and pick up a pass to attend.  
    They will be laminated and I will expect them back as I use them to document tutoring attendance.
     
    Please keep in mind that it is in your child's best interest to come to more than one tutoring to retake a test: at least one to review, and one to take the test.  I will not allow a student to simply retake a test without review ahead of time. Students that come in to review with me before actually taking a test score much higher!  Thank you! 
     
    If you have any concerns about your child's grades or need any clarifying of assignments or projects, please feel free to contact me at: ccole@msaschool.org
