Mr. Deldrick Burley
It is with great excitement that I enter my fifth year at Permenter, teaching 7th grade math. My name is Deldrick Burley, and I am certainly blessed to have the opportunity to educate such a wonderful group of scholars here at Permenter Middle School.
I am a graduate of Stephen F. Austin State University. I received my Bachelor’s Degree in Business Management in May of 2006 and went on to apply for teaching certification through Texas Teachers. I am currently pursuing my Master's degree from Liberty University. My educational experience consists of substitute teaching with Arlington ISD, mentorship and tutoring through Solid Foundation and also through my fraternity, MOG (Men of God Christian Fraternity). I began my CHISD adventure at Joe Wilson Intermediate School in Cedar Hill and I am excited to now be a part of the wonderful staff at Permenter Middle School. What you can expect from me is someone who has a tremendous passion for the youth, someone who is very charismatic and creative, and someone who goes beyond lecturing to build rapport and relationships with students in an effort to ensure their success. This year is especially exciting for me as it is likely my last year in the classroom as I will be receiving my Master's Degree and Principal Certificate this year.
What I expect from my scholars:
I expect my scholars to be in class on time, be prepared with the appropriate materials, and be ready to work every day. I encourage my students to be creative and have a willing attitude as I am big on student engagement and class participation. I expect a mutual respect in regards to the teacher/student relationship as well as their peer relationships with each other. I can assure you that my intent is not to belittle or disrespect your child in any way and I expect the same in return. In addition to these things, scholars are to display behaviors consistent with our "essential ten" which are as follows;
Permenter Essential 10
- *Respond appropriately to adults.
- *Make eye contact when someone is speaking.
- *Respect others comments, opinions, and ideas.
- Always say thank you when given something.
- Follow the specific campus protocols, even when there is a guest teacher.
- Stand to answer all questions with a complete sentence.
- If anyone is bullying you, let an adult know.
- *Be respectful with your words and gestures.
- Learn from your mistakes and move on.
- Be the best person you can be.
These things have been set in place to not only help our scholars have a successful school experience, but to assist with making them respectable, productive members of society.
Here are some ways you can help at home:
- Celebrate your child’s successes, no matter how small they may seem. This will keep your child enthusiastic and proud of his/her work!
- Look through your child’s agenda/binder each day. The agenda/binder serves as an important home-school communication tool. Special notes, test announcements, homework assignments, and behavioral notes are documented in the agenda. Parents can also use the agenda/binder as a means of communicating with their child’s teachers.
Have your scholars to practice math at home. I encourage all scholars to take just 30 minutes per day to practice math. Here are some helpful sites fr them to practice: www.ixl.com www.khanacademy.com www.youtube.com www.purplemath.com www.student-tutor.com
**** If you have any questions or concerns, please do not hesitate to contact me at school. My contact information is listed below. I will have conference time from 9:18 - 10:03 in the morning
Thank you for your support and partnership.
Sincerely, Deldrick Burley
