Welcome to Ms. Dean's class pages. These pages were created to help students and parents keep up with the educational activities of Ms. Dean's classes. Please consult the calendar regularly to know what has been assigned, due dates, and when assignments were collected as well as the daily agenda (posted in the tab for each class above) especially if absent where you will find out what you missed and possibly be able able to complete some assignments before returning so you aren't behind.
When possible, assignments & resources will be uploaded in the appropriate section. Due to copyright laws, not all assignments or resources can be uploaded. Other activities such as discussions can't be made up so daily attendance in class is important. If absent, please email DeanKL@nv.ccsd.net if you need copyrighted materials emailed. Some things I may be able to email and some things I won't be able to email.
A Brief History: I am a Las Vegas native and have been teaching English since 2001. Mannion opened in the fall of 2004. and I was part of the opening staff here. In addition to teaching middle school, I have also taught English as a Second Language to adults, taught high school students at night school , taught grades 6-12 in summer school, and taught high school students with the Upward Bound program at UNLV. My favorite part of teaching is seeing a student's face light up when he or she suddenly understands and "gets" the concept or skill being taught as well as that smile spread across the face when a student is able to use his own critical thinking skills to problem solve!
