I will be entering grades only for students who receive pull-out support during their core subjects. My grading policy for each grade level may vary depending on individual education plans. Please email myself, or your child’s classroom teacher if you have any questions regarding grades.

Classroom Management

Class Rules:

1.     Always do your best work.

2.    Be a caring friend.

3.    Raise your hand to speak.

4.    Follow directions quickly.

5.    Listen when someone is speaking.


This year I will be using Class Dojo again to reward positive behaviors in our classroom.  Students will receive Dojo Points for positive behavior and may lose points if they are not following our classroom rules. Every Friday students will choose a reward from the Dojo choice menu if they earn 20 points that week. I will also be giving Dojo Points for completing homework on time.

Please contact me with any questions or concerns you may have. I will do my best to make sure your child has a successful school year! :) 

 I will be updating this site regularly throughout the year. Please contact me if you have any questions or concerns.
