Hi Students and Parents!  We are almost half way through the school year. I am enjoying working with your students during this different school year. Everyone has a different situation, so please do what is best for your family during virtual learning.  I hope that all my students are reading each day and practicing math skills. If you are an elementary student, please work on Lexia Core 5 for 20 minutes each day. If you are a middle school student, please work on Power UP for 20 minutes each day. Please take care of yourselves during this time.  I've compiled a list of websites and other resources you and your family can use to keep the learning FUN! You can reach me at the email below and I can set up a zoom meeting if needed.

My office hours are Monday from 10:30 until 12:00 for all students. Join me in my virtual classroom on zoom at that time.

I will email the meeting ID and password to the email that I have on file.
