Some of the ways Edline can help you be involved in your child’s education follow:

Review your children's personalized Combined Calendar to view all of their tests, assignments, athletic events, club meetings, and other school news and functions in a single calendar.
Print permission slips, student forms, and other required paperwork.
Preview lunch menus, be notified of school closings, and be alerted of any other school news
important to you.
Make your children’s education an important part of family life. Learn about your children’s daily classroom activities from their teachers’ web pages so you can discuss them and participate in their projects.
Help your children study by accessing the teacher's interactive classroom study guides, and online discussions.
Access all your children’s information by combining accounts and signing in only once using a
single screen name and password.
Have peace of mind knowing all school data is password protected and available only to your child and you.

“Good teaching is more a giving of right questions than a giving of right answers.” -Joseph Albers
Mrs. Troxclair's
Texas History Class

Teaching was not my first career. I was not happy with the experience my children were getting. I decided to do something about it.
Why I Teach
I believe all students have the ability to learn. The only difference is “how” they learn. I also believe at some point a student must begin to take responsibility for their learning to be successful. I can give them the answers, but they will be more successful if I ask them questions that engage them rather than just give them answers to memorize.
My Teaching Philosophy
Depth of understanding, depth of questioning, depth in how students apply what they’ve learned, and depth in the process and product related to their learning is really what we’re talking about.
"Rigor in education does not necessarily mean more and it most definitely does not mean more of the same thing. However, when you look at the definition of rigor -harsh, inflexibilty in opinion, temper or judgement or a condition that makes life difficult, challenging or uncomfortable- it makes sense that this is how we’ve been viewing rigor in education." from Edublogs
