Transcript of Back to School Night

-Every student has a Google Drive account. Their email and password followed them from the elementary schools.

-This email address and password were printed on your student's class schedule.

-Google Drive allows students to upload work to cloud storage; they no longer have to worry about loading a USB drive or emailing the assignment in. A lot of the teachers here will be using Google Drive this year.
Welcome to Back to School Night
A little about me...
Tools for Student Success
Remind and Google Drive!!!
Remind is an online service that allows a reminder to be sent to your phone via text or to your email account.
I have asked that all students enroll in my Remind classes for easier communication.
I will never have you or your students' phone numbers, and they will never see mine. It's completely safe!
-This is my third year as a Lancer at Laguna!!!
-I teach seventh grade English and AVID this year.
-I received my Bachelor's degree in Child and Adolescent Development with a Minor in English from Cal State Fullerton (go Titans!)
I look forward to an amazing year with your student!

Please feel free to contact me any time
I was born and raised in Southern California and am a recent transplant to the San Luis Obispo area.

-This is my fifth year in the classroom. This year, I also became one of the WEB program coordinators along with Ms. Ahearn.
The goal of the English/Language Arts program is to help students to become better readers, speakers, and writers through the study of both fiction and nonfiction texts.
