Mr. Truax

  Welcome to 8th grade Mathematics at Thompson Middle School. This is my 9th year teaching. I started as a high school teacher in Rialto California. Teaching all levels from Algebra 1 to Pre-Calculus. This year I have the pleasure of teaching Math 8, Advance Math 8 and Advance Math 1 from the high school.

  I look forward to working with you and your child this year.  We have had great success at Thompson Middle School because we set high expectations and expect nothing less than 100% from ourselves and our students.  If your child will try their best, do their homework, and ask for help whenever they don't understand, they will be successful and enjoy math this year.  Parents can help students be successful by checking HAIKU every evening.  When your child says they have finished their homework, just taking 5 minutes to skim over their work will help tremendously. 

  If you have any questions this year, please email me at or simply write a note and send it with your child. Again, I look forward to working with you and your child.
