Welcome to 6th Grade Social Studies.
    I am very excited and honored to get the opportunity to work with your child. I believe you know your child best, and so I desperately want to build a strong team with you. Let's work together to help your child grow both emotionally and cognitively this year. Please reach out to me anytime. 
    Student resources for the class will be placed in Schoology, our online classroom location.  Your child may never visit this page since they find everything they need in Schoology. I will also provide a parent access password during Curriculum Night. Remember to refer to the always helpful Classroom Portal found on the S-Wing 6th Grade Team Page for daily announcements for each class.  Also, grades are live and immediate in Powerschool.  Please check in Powerschool regularly with your child to make sure all assignments are submitted, so there aren't any surprises at the end of the trimester.  You can also set Powerschool to send you an update every couple weeks.  That is very helpful because we all get super busy and forget. 
    Please feel free to explore more of our classroom philosophies and practices that are listed in the left navigation bar. 
    Be sure to contact me any time via email.  It is easiest for me to get your message via email, and then we will setup a time to talk on the phone or conference.  I am working with students throughout the daily, so look for a return email after school hours. 
    I feel honored to work with your child and watch them grow this year.
