Eureka Math Resources!

This link will take you directly to the District 205 Mathematics for Parents website:


Click on the grade level you are looking for near the top of the page.  Near the bottom of each page, there are parent resources including my favorite:  Duane Habecker.  Duane has a Youtube channel where he teaches each Eureka lesson.  This is a great way to reinforce each of the lessons if your child requires extra practice or some re-teaching!

About me.....

Hello!  My name is Elizabeth Franks and I am the Resource Teacher at Jefferson!  The 2017-2018 school year will be my fourth year working at Jefferson!  Wow, how time flies by!  As Resource Teacher, I will be working with students in a number of different capacities, both inside and outside of the classroom.  I will collaborate with classroom teachers and specialists to develop strategies to meet the diverse learning needs of our students, as well as provide intervention and instruction to help students access the core curriculum and meet their individualized goals.  I strongly believe that a child's success is largely based on the collaborative effort between school and home.  I encourage parents to reach out to me often and communicate with me on a regular basis.  I am looking forward to another wonderful school year!
