Welcome & Classroom Information
I want to welcome you all to my website where you can gain insight into distance learning for science.. Most of the important information will be found on Google Classroom, however, you may email me from here to stay in contact when necessary. I will be adding to Google classroom regularly so please check there for new assignments. If you have specific questions with regards to an assignment please send me an email and I will get back to you right away during my regular office hours, which are from 9:30-10am Monday, Wednesday and Friday for 8th grade and 12-12:30 for my STEM class. All other emails will be returned ASAP, within 24hrs. I will be having a zoom classroom meeting for each class once a week from now on. Stay tuned for more information as to when we will be having our meetings. Check google classroom for more information. I will be attempting to keep things as close to our normal routine as possible, so most of you will easily stay on target. Stay Well.
