google meets - if you want to request a google meet with me email me first, with a date and time and I will create a meet for that, I may also hold meets for each subject from time to time.
Marion County Public Schools may record online classroom sessions utilizing third-party platforms (Zoom, Google Classroom, etc.). 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
Google voice - I will be available from this number (352)559-6087 > This is NOT my home number. Please email me first if you want or need to call me to make sure that I am available to do so.
My hours will be Monday- Friday from 9:00am until 4pm. After those hours I will not be able to take calls/meets or answer emails. I will not be available on the weekends. Assignments will be posted on Mondays and due the following Sunday (example - Assignment given on Monday April 6th will be due Sunday April 12th.)
I know this is a very frustrating and upsetting time right now, we will manage to get through this. I believe in all of you and miss all of you!!
**UPDATE***---- 4/1/2020, For all the students that could not log into Google Classroom via using the code, I have sent an invitation to the classroom via your SCHOOL EMAIL. Please check it and accept it.
I will be working from the classroom and possibly from home. I will be uploading assignments for you to complete. I will also have hours where I will be available for conferencing via telephone. The phone number for the classroom is (352) 671-4725 Extension 55502. You can reach me also at firstname.lastname@example.org. There are some other platforms that I am exploring to use as well. This would include Google Classroom and Google Meets. Please keep checking my teacher website for details, assignments and any other informaton that may be important in these trying times.
The hours of 10:00am until 11:00am AND 1:00pm until 2:00pm I will be available soley for teacher/student conferences, teacher/parent coferences. But please know, if you need my help I will be available other than those time periods. I try to always make myself as available as possible. Email is a sure way to get ahold of me, just be patient as it may take me a little bit of time to respond.
To access your assignments you will need to go to Google classroom and put in a code for the class that you have me for. Google classroom can be found when you bring up google chrome, then click on the multi-colored dots, there you will find google classroom, click on google classroom and you should be instructed to enter a classoom code. here are the codes for the following courses/classes:
6th grade World History -1st and 2nd period- Code: gzpjyfk
7th grade Civics - 4th, 5th and 6th period- Code: yu4h7ny
Social Skills - 4th period - Code: 6ehn4nn
8th grade U.S. History - Code: qluwtxt
Once you are in the class, click on the assignment for instruction on what to do and how to complete it.
I will be creating at least 3 assignments per week. There will be 1 grade given per week.
We are all in this together and we will make it work. I am learning this new teaching format just as you have to learn this new learning format. We got this guys. I believe in you and know you can do this and you will do this well. Thank you all for supporting and understanding at this time.
