I hope this page helps us work together to continue the education you've started for your child. After all, you were their first teacher. I consider us a team! I'll use this page to post articles, give you access to Class Dojo, and more! Many of the web sites we'll use have a username and password specific to your child. I'll send that info to you directly. Please contact me should you have any issues logging into any sites we use!
When it comes to parents and teachers working together, 1+1 is far greater than 2!

“You don't have to be a billionaire to believe you can make a difference. Give your resources to a charity and volunteer in your community.”
I use Class Dojo to monitor each child's behavior and as a way to ensure that I am giving each child enough positive feedback. It is also a great communication tool! I can message the whole class with last minute updates or contact individual parents with questions or comments.
Please remember these simple guidelines.
I'll admit it! I love to learn about how children learn. From time to time, I'll come across an article I just HAVE to share with you! When that happens I'll post the title below as a link to the full article. Happy reading!
