Maryland Elementary School
I have a Bachelor's of Education and a Master's of Curriculum and Supervision from Miami University. My teaching career spans twenty-six years with experience teaching second, third, fifth, and sixth grades. I bring my love of learning, reading, dogs, gardening, and alternative forms of transportation to my teaching!
My Homeroom Schedule Overview
Please check your child's assignment notebook periodically for daily assignments and notes from me. You can also use Canvas to check on assignments, due dates, and links.
I can be reached at the email address listed above. Please allow 24 hours for me to get back to you. 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.
If there is something significant impacting your student's well being please consider letting me know so I may make adjustments, if needed, to their workload.
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.)
- Listen to and follow all directions.
- Respect each other – We are all equal!
- Come to class with an open mind.
- Participate and cooperate in all activities.
