This year is going to be a little different in our classroom. Due to COVID-19 regulations, we are having to wear masks and practice Social Distancing. This is not something I am used to as an educator and truthfully feels that every instructional strategy I have been taught will be set back many years! I am sad that we will not be able to participate in certain activities, but I plan to make this year the best it can be for my students! My goal is to constantly provide a classroom environment for each of my students where they feel loved, respected, and welcomed no matter their background. Our number one goal is for student success, and with an inviting community and rigorous content, I believe all of my students will be successful! Please take a look at my sweet class for this year and wish us well as we begin this difficult, yet interesting Pandemic School Year journey! Happy teaching, friends!
