Lisa Jorgenson


My name is Lisa Jorgenson.  This is my first year teaching at Roncalli High School.  I received a Bachelor of Science degree in Civil Engineering from South Dakota School of Mines and Technology.  I worked in the engineering field for 5 years after graduation, and was then certified as a Professional Engineer.  My husband and I moved from Fairmont, MN to Aberdeen in 2004.  I have spent the last 12 years as a stay-at-home mom to my three kids, Genevieve (12), Andrew (10), and Benjamin (7).  I am excited to put my knowledge, understanding, and love of math to work teaching the students at Roncalli High School.

Geometry is a branch of math that focuses on the measurement and relationships between lines, angles, surfaces, solids and points.  It is my goal to make these relationships understandable and relatable to real world applications, and to prepare the students for higher levels of mathematics. 

Class Expectations

  1. Be respectful at all times.
  2. Be helpful.
  3. Actively participate in class. 
  4. No cell phones or iPods.
  5. Work hard, and never give up.

►Tests will count for 40% of the student’s final grade.

►Quizzes will count for 30% of the student’s final grade.

►Homework will count for 30% of the student’s final grade.  5 points per day will be awarded for each homework assignment based on completion and effort, at the teacher’s discretion.  Late homework will result in a 50% reduction in grade for that assignment.

Class Supplies

►Notebook and binder- Each student is expected to keep a notebook and binder with class notes, handouts, and examples given in class.  It will be beneficial to keep these binders up to date, even in the event of an absence, as there will be times that the students will be allowed to use them on quizzes.

►Each student will need a compass for drawing circles and arcs, as well as a protractor to measure angles.

►Students can access the textbook at https://connected.mcgraw-hill.com/connected/login.do .   Students will be given a username and password to access the text remotely.
