At Mansfield Middle School, we have finished up our second great week of school. Our Middle School students have been absolutely tremendous. Each student has been engaged and working toward growth socially, emotionally, and educationally. The Middle School has had is best two weeks of any school year, due to great teachers, students, and parents at home.
Each week we are going to take an opportunity to spotlight some of those excellent people that make Mansfield Middle School so great. Our spotlight this week is on 5th and 6th grade lead math teacher Mrs. Ally Dake.
Mrs. Dake is in her third year teaching and first year at Mansfield Middle School. Mrs. Dake is actively enriching Middle School math curriculum with engagNY and a plethora or resource materials. Mrs. Dake works closely with Mrs. Martin to drive math student achievement. Mrs. Dake is a graduate of Hartford High School. Mrs. Dake has taught one year at Paris and one year at Lavaca before becoming a Tiger Math teacher. Mrs. Dake is mother of two Owen and Thea. Mrs. Dake is also married to Coach Keith Dake High School Basketball and Assistant Volleyball coach at Mansfield.
These are some of the items Mrs. Dake’s students are stating after their first two weeks of class.
