Hello, 6th Graders!
First of all - welcome to 6th grade! You made it to middle school! :)
Even though so many things are going to be different this year - moving from elementary to middle, new safety precautions in place for COVID-19, virtual and in-person school options - one thing remains the same...you need to learn MATHEMATICS! As one of your teachers, I am here to guide and help you navigate through your educational journey, from the academic topics we will explore to learning time management, organization, how to manage stress, and other ways to prepare for your awesome future. Whether you’re learning online or in person, I am here to help. :)
During the 2020-2021 school year, there are two 6th grade general education teachers with mathematics inclusion classes - Mrs. Nowery and Miss Zorich! I have worked with both of these wonderful teachers during my years here at OMS and am very pleased to work with them again this year. No matter which one of these teachers’ classes you are in, I’ll be partnering with them to ensure you are receiving the services and accommodations you need to be successful.
We will be using Microsoft Teams to work together, whether that’s virtually or in person. Each of your teachers will be reviewing how to access your MCPS Student Portal, which will allow you to access Microsoft 365 and the Microsoft Teams platform. If you need any extra assistance, please ask!
Here's a link to the video for how to access Microsoft Teams if you need help: Microsoft Teams Overview
Here’s to making every single day of the 2020-2021 school year the best we possibly can! :)
