Ms. Pouncey

Thomas Jefferson Upper Elementary





As I write this letter, Covid 19 has caused states and local communities to put measures in place to protect groups of people especially those at high risk.  School systems are closed and teachers are making lessons available on Google Classroom and using Zoom.  This way we can keep in touch while using social distancing.



It’s actually a myth to think that you need copious amounts of patience or virtue to do this (and I am living proof!). And I’m going to blow your mind here a bit (and I say this with absolute respect for the many amazing teachers out there that are affected by this) – yes, you can educate your children without a teaching degree! Your teachers, administration, and the school system is going to support you. There may be bumps as everyone transitions, but you’ve got this! And guess what? You’re probably going to learn some amazing things along the way!


I will be in touch with you using Zoom and Google Classroom.


 Enrichment activities- NOT mandatory.


Google Classroom will have lessons set up for you to complete.


Web sites that will help you.
