Welcome to our Classroom Website
    Hello! My name is Mr. Smith. This is my sixth year at McKinley and my first year teaching 4th grade. I have been in the teaching profession for seven years and have taught 1st, 2nd and 3rd grades. Prior to teaching I worked in healthcare for 15 years. I graduated from Northwestern College with my Associates of Arts degree and from Augsburg College with my degree in elementary education. I plan on returning to college next year to obtain my Masters in Education Leadership degree.
    I have been married for 15 years to my wonderful wife who is also a teacher in the district. We have three incredible children (1 girl and 2 boys) ages 12, 9 and 7.  In my free time I love to spend time with my family. We enjoy many outdoor activities like camping, hiking, boating, swimming and playing all sports. I also enjoy playing the drums and singing at our church. 
    I feel incredibly blessed to be able to work with kids here at McKinley Elementary. Developing meaningful relationships with all of my students is one of the best parts of what I get to do as a teacher. Another exciting part, is watching the students grow and learn new things throughout the school year. I truly believe I have the best job in the world!
    Thank you for supporting your student's education! I am excited to work with your child and watch their growth this year. Together we can help your child achieve success! 
    ~Mr. Smith

  • Math Resources


    This site contains fun activities that students can do to practice different math skills. Students take a pre-test and then the website provides practice problems to students at their level and adjusts the difficulty based on their performance as they practice. Students must use the following login information to access the site: (Note there are two different passwords depending on your homeroom)

    Username: First name, Last Initial (example: John A.) Password for 4JSM: x7pe8d      Password for 4PAR: b3x8b4 

    IXL Math   

    IXL Math is a great resource that allows you to select specific skills for your student to practice. It then gives an explanation for each incorrect answer.

    Multiplication Math       

    This site contains links to games for practicing addition, subtraction, multiplication, and division. 


    This is an exclusive Anoka Hennepin site that gives you access to games and activities to develop specific skills. The activities are organized by the name of the report card indicator.   

    Everyday Math       

    In addition to games, you can also access an electronic copy of the Student Reference Book through this site. (Still in the process of obtaining a username and password. I'll update this asap.)
