Mr. Waggoner-5th Grade Math


Dear Parents/ Guardians,

Welcome to a great new year! I am excited to be your child’s 5th grade math teacher!  I would like to take this opportunity to introduce myself.  This is my 14th year in education, 13 in Mustang and 1 year in Kansas. I was in the classroom for 6 years teaching third grade,1 year of 6th grade math, 5 years as an assistant principal at Canyon Ridge Intermediate, and last year here at Meadow Brook as a 5th grade math teacher. 

I was born in Wichita Falls, Texas, but was raised in McPherson, Kansas. I have a wonderful wife named Amber, but no children. Amber and her family were born and raised in Oklahoma, so this is where I decided to call home. I am a huge sports fan! I love the Texas Rangers, Texas Longhorns, OKC Thunder, Wichita State Shockers, and the Cincinnati Bengals.

 As for my educational background, I received my Bachelors of Education from Wichita State University and soon after received my first Master’s degree in Math Education. I then decided to attain my second Master’s degree, which is in Educational Administration, in order to be a principal.

               I do not feel that sending home homework for students in the 5th grade helps students academically and research shows that there is no evidence to show homework is beneficial for 5th graders. It is always my attempt to have students complete the assignment in class, so they do not have to bring anything home to work on.  Please know that I will be in contact with you if your student is struggling and/or not getting assignments completed, so we can work on a plan to help them be successful. 

      In 5thgrade your child will be challenged with a lot of new material in math. It is very important that there is communication between parents and teachers.  If you ever have any questions or concerns about your child, feel free to call.  You can reach me at 256-5250.  Feel free to also email me at [email protected]  Without communication between the two of us, it will be very difficult for your child to reach his or her full academic capability.  I am looking forward to a fun and successful year! Please let me know if there is anything I can do to help.
