  • Welcome to class. As we go on this online adventure together, I want to remind you that we are in this together. As stressful as this time can be for all of us, I want to make it as easy for you and the students as possible. Since Mrs. Hanks and I team-teach, we will be offering you times in our day where we will make ourselves available to you live. This is a time where we can receive calls, make calls, accept video requests, share via Zoom, etc. All other times, feel free to e-mail us and we will normally respond as soon as possible within the hours of 7:45 a.m. and 2:00 p.m.

    If you have not received e-mails from us yet, please e-mail us so we can add you to our contact list. This is one major way we will keep you informed through this process.
