Welcome to Distance Learning
Hello, and welcome to third grade! I am looking forward to getting to know your children, and I hope we will be able to stay open without interruption for the entire school year. We will be using a great deal of technology starting Day 1. We've spent the last three weeks learning and practicing Microsoft Teams as a platform in case of interruption. Here is a link for you to use to help you and your child with this platform.
Now, a little bit about me. I grew up and lived in Michigan until 1990 when we moved to the Dunnellon area. I have been working at Romeo Elementary since the 1992-1993 school year. I was hired on as a temporary para, but I'm still here 28 years later! For 14 years, I was a paraprofessional working in all grade levels. In 2002, I went back to college to complete my degree in Elementary Education. I worked full time and went to school in the evenings. In 2007, I was hired as a 3rd grade teacher. I've been in 3rd almost the whole time, except for 1 year in second grade and 1 year with a 2nd/3rd grade combo. The 20-21 school year will be my 14th year as a teacher. I teach math and science, and team with Mrs. Alexander. She teaches reading and social studies to our 2 classes. Together, we are looking forward to a wonderful school year, even with all the changes due to COVID! Feel free to contact either of us via email, phone, or Class Dojo with any questions or comments.
