Welcome to my literacy and social studies classroom and to the 2021/2022 school year! I'm so glad I will be teaching your child this year and we are looking forward to a great year together! Things may still look a little different this year in our "new normal", but the goal is the same. My goal is to provide a quality education to my students so they will grow and thrive as students and individuals as they continue through middle school and into high school.
Middle school is a big transition and much more is expected from students, but we will work together to succeed and continue to grow. Please encourage your students to work hard, follow directions and stay focused each and every day. Please encourage your students to do their work on time, ask questions and check their grades regularly.
Student assignments will be posted in google classroom so please join our classroom as a "parent" so that you can get daily or weekly updates of assignments, announcements, completed and missing work. All parents/guardians were sent emails inviting you to join. Also, be sure that students and parents are using oncourse regularly to check grades. Students and parents have their own log-ins and should not be using one anothers'.
Please don't hesitate to ever ask for help, reach out to me with concerns or just "check in" on your students. I'm here to help and eager to work with you to ensure the success of all my students. Should you need to contact me, email me at firstname.lastname@example.org.
I am looking forward to a GREAT 2021/2022 school year!
