Welcome to Mr. Brooks' Class
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.
Parents and Students,
It is a pleasure to have your kids in my class this year! I am so excited to be in my fourth year here at Dr. N.H. Jones Elementary. From my experience we have the best students around. I look forward to a very successful year teaching second grade.
On a personal note, I am a married father of two, Miller is nine in third grade here at 8th Street Elementary and Mary Frances is twelve in seventh grade at North Marion Middle School. I know how awesome the students, faculty, and staff are because I’ve seen it firsthand for the last six years as a parent and the last three years as a teacher. I love music (Michael Franti), kayaking (Silver and Rainbow Rivers and any other waterway I can drop in to), camping (SOSMP) and anything outdoors. My favorite color is PURPLE!!! My favorite sport is soccer (futbol) and I love the Orlando City Lions aka, OCSC, City, Orlando City SC. I love the Jacksonville Jaguars...DUUUUVAL!!!, UCF Knights, Florida Gators, and FSU Seminoles (except when they play the Gators).
I will be using ClassDojo as lines of communication and for behavior tracking and it is the best way to get a hold of me with any concerns. Please feel free to reach out with any questions that may arise. The standards focus board will list the day’s topic, standard, learning goal, and daily agenda. I will be using many different mediums to teach your kids. We will use our Go Math, CKLA (language arts texts), KhanAcademy, Discovery Education, Social/Science studies weekly, STEMscopes, Google Classroom, and many other resources to deliver instruction. Ideally, the students will be engaged in each subject daily and we will work hard to assure the mastery of the standards we will be working toward.
If you have any questions please direct message me on ClassDojo or by email at Cary.Brooks@marion.k12.fl.us

Please use ClassDojo to get updated information and as a direct contact for any questions that may arise throughout the year. Please note that throughout the year my schedule and availability changes depending on what extracurricular activities my kids are doing (softball, soccer, scouts, etc.). I try to be available until 5:00 p.m. daily and then again in the evenings after about 7:30 or so.
