About me:                Mrs. Lafon,  Building A  room #219

Picture
Hi, I am Mrs. Lafon and I'm a Math teacher at Bowie H.S.   I have been teaching for 20 years, and I really love it.  I believe that teaching is a 2 way street, where 2 people have to work together for learning to occur.
My job is to explain the material in as many ways as necesary, so that all students understand it.  I am available and ready to help students in class, one on one, after class for tutoring, or through videos that I will be posting of each theme we cover in class, so students can watch them at home.

I expect my students to come to class prepared, work hard, participate, ask questions and do all their work.  This is the only way to learn.

Students have a right to get an education, but with it comes the responsibility of doing everything they need to do, to achieve it.    A teacher alone, cannot make a student learn, if he/she doesn't do his/her part.
