Welcome to my Website!

  • Parents and students, thank you for visiting my class website.


    Please use the toolbar to the left to access any information you may need for your student's class. Your student has made so much progress this year, and I know they will continue to do so as we transition to this new hybrid classroom format. Please think of our new hybrid classroom format as an opportunity to prepare you for the middle school/high school grade levels: I just spent the past 5 years teaching at the high school level and I can promise you that a lot of the curriculum was a hybrid format also! You are going to be so well prepared for middle school after this!


    This is a learning curve for all of us, but I know together, we will make it work!


    Students: please know that your Evergreen family loves you, misses you, and we can't wait to see you soon!



    Ms. Barnes
