Mrs. Isbell's Second Grade Class

Distance Learning...Here We Come!

  • We don't shake...WE SHIFT!

    We are ALL learning, growing and shifting during this time and our goal is to leave NO ONE behind.  So I say to you all...Let's SHIFT TOGETHER!



    As we shift into this new way of teaching and learning we will be using Google Classroom - for weekly assignments.  Google Classroom is located on the Student Portal under the Google Apps Tab.  I have already joined all of the students to my Google Classroom to ensure a smooth start on Wednesday, April 1st.  I will provide each students log-in information via Dojo in case they have forgotten it.


    Directions for logging onto student desktop:

    1. Go to
    2. Click on MCPS Desktop (located towards the upper right)
    3. Enter your username and password.


    In the coming days we will also schedule a Zoom video call so that we can all see and interact with one other as a class.  I will provide the link and meeting details at the appropriate time.

    If you have any questions please feel free to send me a message via Class Dojo.
