Degrees and Certifications:
I am new to Marion county but not to teaching! I believe communication and working together is so important for your students success. Please do not hesitate to contact me if you need anything. I can be reached through email and during this COVID-19 pandemic I will be reaching out to you the parents and guardians to get you on board for distance learning. If you have any questions please let me know. I hope you all are doing well and I cannot wait to see you again in class!
JUST A REMINDER, Not everything that is posted is due.
THINGS TO FOCUS ON WITH YOUR STUDENT:
Social Studies Weekly
PACKETS: Are big so don't stress
I would rather have enough work for your student than not enough, so please do not feel pressure to complete it all. We are at a point that we are doing what is working for the distance learning situation at home and all my students are different. Focus on the above and then the packets and once those are done then the Happy Numbers and Brainzy, Myon , and any other educational apps you may be using like prodigy. I know our classes are unique that is why our learning goals are going to vary. Please check in with me as much as you need on your students progress. Different weeks may hold different things and I understand this time is very challenging for our students. I am here to help in any way I can so please reach out to me as soon as you have a question.
Thank you for all that you are doing to help make your students distance learning experience one that is supportive to their needs :) We appreciate all of you continuing their education at this time!

These recordings will only be used for educational purposes and may be shared on other learning platforms. If you do not want your child’s image or identifying information recorded, utilize your device/platform controls to stop the camera feed from your device.
