This is my fourth year at Maryland Elementary in an intervention position working with children on phonics, executive functioning and math skills. Prior to this I worked as an intervention specialist in a middle school in Grove City and as a classroom teacher at a preschool. I grew up in Reynoldsburg, Ohio and graduated from Capital University with a degrees in Early Childhood Education, Special Education and a minor in art. I have my reading endorsement and am highly qualified in the areas intervention of Math, Reading, and Science K-12. I am an avid reader and Soduku puzzle completer. I have worked with students in many grade levels and am very excited to be working with your student here at Maryland.

If you send an email over the weekend I will follow-up shortly after the weekend, or earlier if I’m available. If at any time you would like to schedule an in person or a telephone conference call with me please let me know as we work together to organize a schedule.

Parents and Canvas:
Please sign-up for a parent account into Canvas. A parent/observer account will enable you to view classroom notices, assignments, resource lists, and more. It's important that you have your own account and not use your student's login. Privacy of student information and interactions are covered by Federal Educational Rights Privacy Act (FERPA). Your account permits you to see your student's work. Your parent Canvas account will work across all buildings and classrooms that your children are in at Bexley Schools.
How to Sign-Up: Please use a desktop or laptop computer to sign-up initially, not a mobile device. Go to the Canvas page (http://bexleyschools.instructure.com) click on Parent of a Canvas user. Enter in the information asked for and then have your child enter in their Canvas/Network username and passcode. Passcodes are unique to each student, this is why you’ll need your child with you when you initially setup your Canvas account or when adding another student. An email will be set which you'll click in the finish the registration process. Once you’re registered in the system you can add additional children under your Account, Settings, Observing. Canvas provides you with one place to view and access course and classroom information across the multiple schools and classrooms. Here is a website that describes the features available to the observer role.
The school-wide rules covered in the student handbook will also be used in this class.
Grading is completed in conjunction with the classroom teachers and is dependent on the student's grade level. Please look for updated progress on individual goals in their report card envelopes.
I expect that each student to come to class ready to learn and to put forth his or her best effort each and every day. That is the key to success in this classroom!
