About Mr. Vyvyan
Hello! My name is Mr. Vyyvan. I am one of the fifth-grade teachers. I absolutely love teaching and inspiring young minds. I knew I wanted to be a teacher when I was in 4th grade. This is my 10th year teaching and my second-year teaching at Highwood Hills Elementary. I have taught 2nd grade, 5th, 6th and 7th grade. I have a Bachelor’s of Science from Winona State University. I am a Green Bay Packers Fan! In my free time I enjoy staying active by lifting, biking, running and spending time with my family. My Wife and I have a 4 year old (Philomena) , 2 year old, (Virginia) and a 8 month old (Blaise).
I love Highwood Hills because...
This school offers so many opportunities for students and staff throughout the school year to achieve their goals. Some of these opportunities is EDL (after school programs), during the day enrichment classes (Learning Lab, Math CORE, Reading CORE, Social Emotional Learning lessons, book buddies and many more classes). This school offers hands on experience (field trips, assemblies, ceremonies, etc) The overall enthusiastic and optimistic environment here is welcoming and great!
My students receive the following homework assignments each week by...
Students should read and complete a book log daily. Students bring home a two- or three-page math packet on Monday and are expected to return it on Friday. They will also have Science and Social studies to complete as well (Monday, Tuesday and Wednesdays) They will also have Words Their Way (Skills) To do daily if not finished in class.
I communicate with families by...
Through my email and schoology. I will do my best to check my emails and voice messages throughout the day and respond to them as quickly as I can. I will also send home notes in their take home folders.
