Mrs. Janice McGovern
This is my 19th year teaching math here at King Philip Middle School. This year I will be teaching 8th grade math. I taught 7th grade math for 15 years and then both grades for two years.
My goal is to relate the curriculum to the real life of my students. If the students understand why a topic is important and how they can use it in their everyday life right now, they are more willing to take ownership of mastery of the material. With effective effort, a positive attitude, and the maturity to seek help when needed, your child will achieve success and minimize stress levels. As always, I am here to alleviate any concerns or issues you may have regarding classwork. Please do not hesitate to call me, or send an email, so that we may work together to make this academic school year a productive and positive experience for everyone. I look forward to having a great year with your student.
I earned a Bachelor of Science degree in Computer Science from the University of Rhode Island. I later earned a Master's degree in Education from Old Dominion University.
