My name is Valerie Buckland and I teach Math at Hodges Bend Middle School.
My job is to create lessons, activities, and common formative assessments
for students. I participate in collaboratiave team planning, share activities,
and assist in the calendaring of activites for units of study. As a
data-driven campus, I participate in grade-level data team meetings.
Each grade level gives pre-assessments and post-assessments for each
power (readiness) standard. These are used to help drive instruction
and help with reteaching and tutorials.
I have over 20 years experience in education. My teaching experience
includes being a middle school math teacher and math specialist. I have
worked at Hodges Bend Middle School since August 1997. I received my
undergraduate degree in Elementary Education from Stephen F. Austin
State University. I have my Master's Degree from Unversity of Houston
in Curriculum and Development in Mathematics.
Parents-please feel free to contact me if your child needs extra assistance

Information on this site is organized and provided by Valerie Buckland
and Krystal Cortez
The purpose of this site is to aid middle school students in achieving
basic math knowledge and skills needed for classroom success by:
*familiarizing students with necessary vocabulary
*providing drill and practice exercises related to skills
I have worked with students who struggle in math for almost 20 years.
I believe that some of these struggles are related to a lack of basic
knowledge and skills in these subjects, and that there can be an improvement
in student achievement if these basic knowledge and skills are mastered.
NOTE TO PARENTS OF MY STUDENTS:
Math tutorials are by appointmant in the morning from 8:10-8:45 or afternoons
If your child has lost their morning tutorial pass, please email
within 24 hours of tutorials.
Many times parents do not know exactly how to help their child because
they may not understand the concepts or they are not sure of how the
teacher is teaching the material. Therefore, I encourage students with
their parents to work on these help pages together.
