How to Participate in Student Learning
You can actively participate in your student's learning every day by helping to reinforce two messages: 1. Learning is important; 2. Success comes through effort. Although not all students like chemistry or feel that taking it is necessary, we can work as a team to help them be successful and confident in their abilities. I love chemistry and hope to spread some of that enthusiasm to my students. I know that some of the topics covered in this course are not essential to your child's future, however, critical thinking, problem solving, and persevering will be. They are essential skills that I hope to teach this year.
Below are just a few ways you can participate:
School - Home Communication
I will be sending home several pieces of correspondence throughout the school year. If you want to know current grades, Parent Portal is the best option. For other concerns, I am most easily available on e-mail. I try to respond to all e-mail as soon as possible, but at least by the end of the next school day.
