Welcome to first grade! This year will be full of new experiences. I am pleased to be your child’s teacher and look forward to working with you and your child during the school year. I have been teaching for over 20 years. I have taught 2nd, 3rd and now 1st grade. This year I ask for your patience and flexibility as we begin another school year like no other. Here is some information about our class!
1. Students will be assigned to my Google Classroom. Students will use Google Classroom while they are in my physical classroom. Information on accessing my Google Classroom with be sent home if needed. Click here to access my Google Classroom. Only students in my first grade class will have access.
A NOTE ABOUT GOOGLE APPS: Google Classroom and Google Meets work best on Chromebooks, laptops and desktop computers. Apple and Google DO NOT get along! Please try to secure a "non-Apple" device to use this year for any virtual learning and Google Meets (in case we must go that route). If the school offers a computer for home use, please take advantage of it!
2. Join Class Dojo for "text" communication and classroom announcements! Click here to connect to our class. You can download the app for your phone or log-in though a computer. I will use Class Dojo as my parent communication tool to send out messages and reminders fast.
