Welcome to 4th Grade! ;)
I started my career in education as a Bilingual Educational Assistant in Saint Paul Public Schools after graduating from UW-Madison in 1997. After a couple of years, I decided to go back to school to get my teaching license and have been teaching ever since for over 15+ years. I can speak three languages: English, Hmong, and Mandarin Chinese.
Our school hours are from 7:30am to 2:00pm. For everyone's health and safety, we will start out this school year with distance learning. This means, everything will be taught online. Please charge the student iPad overnight since Grade 4 will be using Schoology on the iPad every day.
The class will meet together for some lessons in real time to "see" each other. The other lessons will be completed without the teacher. It will be the responsibility of students to finish ALL the work for each day so they will be ready for the next day's learning materials. We do not want anyone to fall behind.
By the way, there will be opportunities built within the school day for students to get help if they need it! ;)
