Class Policies

1. Please make sure to join our class group to stay up to date on information including field trips, needing snacks or supplies, and even signing up online for parent/teacher conferences.

2. Communication: My office hours will be between 7am and 4pm. Please refrain from calling during the school day so we can continue our learning without interruptions. Our group will be the quickest and easiest way to communicate with me as I always have my phone on me, even during meetings. If I receive a message outside of my office hours, I will do my best to respond as soon as possible but a response may take up to 24 hours. 

3. Behavior: Child development is very important to me. When handling behavior in the classroom, I take a whole brain approach. I help students learn to express their emotions appropriately and help them learn to problem solve as well. For more information on my views for behavior, you can look into the following books:
-The Whole Brain Child
-No-Drama Discipline
-How to Talk so Little Kids Will Listen
