Mrs. Julie Points

Platte City Middle School
6th Grade Social Studies Teacher
 
Welcome to 6th Grade Social Studies!  Throughout the year, students will explore countries and regions on each of the world's continents.  Our focus will be on geography and culture with information on current events, history, government, and economic resources presented as well.  Students will develop research, writing, organization, and presentation skills through classwork, projects, and presentations.
 
I encourage parents and students alike to check the Portal for grades and homework on a regular basis, with Google Classroom being incorporated shortly after ChromeBooks are issued to students.  Please note that whether or not homework is assigned, I include what we did in class and often share upcoming due dates or attach handouts and worksheets. This is the first place you'll want to look for work if you've been absent.  If you contact our secretaries or myself early in the day when you are absent, I can be sure needed books and papers are at the front office by the end of 6th Hour. The best time for you to reach me by phone or for me to respond to emails is during my 6th Hour Plan (Regular Time - 1:01 P.M. to 1:52 P.M) or shortly after dismissal.  My phone number is 816-858-2036, ext. 2661 and email is pointsj@platteco.k12.mo.us.
 
My teaching career began in 1992, and most of that time has been devoted to teaching 6th Grade Social Studies.  I am a graduate of Missouri State University and Baker University.  I enjoy exploring new places, perspectives, and time periods through the words of authors such as Barbara Kingsolver, Louise Erdrich, and Wally Lamb.  I also like to read books that make me laugh out loud.  One of my all time favorites from my childhood is the Fudge series by Judy Blume.  Travel, theatre, and photography/scrapbooking are other hobbies.  My husband Jim and children Alex and Kristin bring joy to my life, and our pets make our home complete.
