I know that these are trying times and we are all strong and will get through this! During the upcoming school days we want students to stay safe and continue their learning. That is why we will be using Empower for extended learning.
In here your child will find daily work in reading, writing, mathematics, social studies, and/or science each day. Each day has its own activities assigned to it. All work that is assigned will be specific to their level and will be counted as evidence for completion of their level. That is why it is very important that your child completes their work every day and not fall behind.
The best way to communicate with me is through your class dojo account on your phone. The application is in the Google play store and Apple Market. The website is: www.classdojo.com.
You can also contact me through my district email: email@example.com.
I thank you for you continued support of your child at home and showing them that their education is important.
Hello Sunset Ridge Community!
I am very excited to be working with your children at Sunset Ridge. This is my 19th year teaching (14th as a CLD Specialist).
Students in my groups will particpate in reading and writing opportunities about many different genres in non-fiction. We will practice active listening skills, as well as, speaking English to communicate what we are learning.
A little about myself:
I am from sunny and warm Miami, FL and have also lived many years in Los Angeles. These two cities have really made me aware of the variety of cultures that make this country such a strong and beautiful place.
My passions are writing, nature, art, traveling, animals of all kinds (especially BIG dogs). I believe in good health and being active to enjoy life to the fullest.
Though I am a fluent English speaker, Spanish is my first language, and I hope to encourage all of my students to become fluent in English, yet keep their native language close to their hearts.
Let's have a great year!
