Mr. Waechter

My name is Mr. Waechter. This year I will be teaching one Algebra class, one Math 8 class, two Computer Science classes and two Industrial Arts classes.  I have been in education since 1996 and the majority of that time has been spend teaching math.  I love the opportunity to teach a variety of subjects.  It keeps me on my toes, breaks up my day and gives me an opportunity to share several different passions.

Canvas Access

How to get there:

Students

  • You will be able to access Canvas through Classlink.
  • You can log in to Classlink by using the link on the Bristow webpage or by pressing the Home button on your Chromebook.
  • If prompted click on Sign in with Google
  • Click on the Canvas Icon

Parents (VERY IMPORTANT INFO BELOW)

-You should get your own observer account in Canvas.  Canvas is going to be your one stop shop for class assignments and grades.  It can be set up to send you push notifications about assignments, grades, communication, etc.  Please watch the Canvas information video.  It will show you some of the features and login information (you will need to search for Brentwood Union School District, NOT Bristow Middle School). After watching the short video and working with your student if you have any questions please email me.  mwaechter@brentwood.k12.ca.us

 

Help Schedule

While many teachers, myself included, are available before or after school by appointment (just talk to me during class and I will let you know if I am available that day) there are teachers who are scheduled to have their rooms open if you need just a place to work, as well as, if you need some help.  Please take a look at the link below.

 

Before/After School Help Times

 

 

Until further notice, students will be learning in-person full-time. 

We will use Classlink to access the various apps needed for each course.  The easiest way to sign in to Classlink is via the Bristow website (right side, near the top).

 

For directions on how to access and/or troubleshoot Classlink, Canvas, Pearson, and MyBackpack, see My Locker (left of this page).

  • All assignments can be accessed and will be turned in through Canvas.  Math classes will be doing work on paper and then submitting by taking a picture and uploading it to Canvas.
  • Although completing an assignment on the day it is assigned is optimal, always be aware of the due dates listed on Canvas.
  • Updated weekly ~ students will receive feedback on individual assignments and sent to students via Canvas.
  • The most updated grades will be posted in Canvas and pushed to the Aeries on a weekly basis.
  • I am typically available after school on M,T&Th for additional help.  Please check with me during the day to be sure. 

  • If you would like to send me a message I would prefer if you did it through the Canvas Inbox.  Students this will be extremely important because I cannot respond to you if you use the email link on this page.

  • Parents you may e-mail me by using the link on the left or by using the Canvas Inbox.
