In the words of me,
“It is time to get our lives!”
“Reading is fundamental!”

Hi guys!

I hope you and your loved ones are in a safe environment and following the procedures needed to reduce your chances of being exposed to COVID-19.

As many of you are aware, we are transitioning to remote learning beginning on Monday, March 23rd. Remote learning is meeting in a nontraditional setting (not a physical classroom but online). We will meet on Google Classroom during everyday for daily lessons and Zoom Video Communications for conferences/whole group instruction.

It is your responsibility to ensure that you are online for your assigned time block. Your assignments/worksheets will be open at the start of your assigned time block each morning and it is your responsibility to complete your tasks by 12:00pm in order to receive your classwork points and attendance points. Since we are unable to meet in our classroom, your completed worksheets will serve as your attendance for that day.

Important: The assignments/activities you complete for the duration of our remote learning will count towards your Marking Period 2 grades! Again, the work you complete online will be counted towards your Marking Period 2 grades!


Students enrolled in the AP Literature course make sure you are present at 8am-9am each morning for class (Monday-Friday). Your activities will open at that time on Google Classroom and I will be online to support you all via email and/or whole group conferences using Zoom. Please check our Google Classroom stream from your Zoom conference URL and meeting access code.
