We are a family!

It's taken a while, but we now have a good schedule in place that enables everyone to receive the service they need in order to get the most out of this school year. Thank you for your patience and support. I'm  a little bit glad that it took a while for everything to fall in place because during that time, we've all come together to become this big family working together to get things moving. I love and cherish each child in my class. Like a parent I see the good and the bad each day, but my love and belief in these kids never wavers, it IS going to be a phenomenal year.


What can you can do right now?

Use Xtramath.org. This site takes much of the pressure off you and when you're ready, you can go in and monitor progress. The progress monitoring is really quite interesting.

Help your child to learn to log on to Chrome quickly. I sent home login sheets for everyone, but I can certainly send it again.

Read to them, read with them, and talk about what they're reading.

Be impressed when your child attempts at using new vocabulary. The fact that they're even attempting to broaden their knowledge is more than what I can say for most adults.

Discuss the truth bomb  and idiom each week and see where it falls within your own lives.

Last but not least, I would appreciate some help on the handwriting front. We will discuss this at conferences,  but I can say right now that many of the kids need to slow down and do their best work.  For many, the right answer may be there, but I can't decipher the script.

It's Going to be a Great Year!

After seven years as the PACE / gifted ed teacher at MBES, this year I asked to go back into a regular classroom. I'm ready to have a group of my own that stays with me all day! I know that we are going to accomplish so much.

As I write this, I haven't even seen my class list, but I'm so excited to meet my students!

Take a moment to explore this site to learn a little bit more about what to expect this year.
