Speaker request for 7th grade

We are beginning our unit on percents, markups, discounts, tips, sales tax etc. I am looking to see if there is anyone out there who deals with commission, or is in the restaurant business or in real estate, who can come in and talk to the classes and explain how percents deal with their jobs. I think it is interesting for them to hear that although a realtor might make a 7% commission on a house they sell, they don’t actually get all that money. Or how a waitress must give some of their tip to the busboy etc. It would be nice to have several speakers or just one.
If you can come some time in the next week or so email me at
Thank you

Thank you everyone!!

I just want to give a big thank you to all the parents and students who either worked on or came to support our Reeds Got talent show. Each year i think I am not going to do it anymore and then when it comes to the night of the show I am so proud of all the students. I laugh, cry and most of all am happy that I am able to give the kids an opportunity to experience the life in the theater. From my stage crew to talent, they all tell me how they didnt realize how much work it takes to put on a show. I think that is the great part of this all.
I am also thrilled to see the support from the audience members for their peers and how much they cheered and have a good time. We try for positivity and I think that happens each year.
My fellow teachers are also such wonderful people to put themselves out there like that for the students. They all know how important it is for students to see us as real people who can also be silly and have a good time. Plus to be honest we have a blast too! they are already asking what our act will be next year.
Thank you parents for EVERYTHING YOU DO!! The lobby looked wonderful, the food is excellent and you guys are just fantastic. I would not even begin to do this without your help. You are so appreciated and I am very very thankful.
So as we move on with the rest of the year, I want to send my thanks to all of you. Please thank any of the participating teachers as well. It is hard to get them to stay on a Friday night, and they did so willingly and with lots of love.
thank you Ms Szymanski
