Distance Learning UPDATE: Course content, student engagement, and learning support opportunities can be found in Canvas, the online platform preferred by our district. All students and families have access to Canvas through the district website here: https://www.everettsd.org/Page/31098. Sign in is required, and since this will be my primary way of sharing content, please feel free to email me if you'd like more information about accessing your student's Canvas page.
Welcome to what I expect will be an amazing year!
This will be my fourth at Henry M. Jackson High School, and I am so excited to learn with you and your students. I know there is a lot of change going on, but I am confident that with positivity and curiosity, we can make this a year of meaningful growth.
Before taking this position, I received my Master of Arts in Education and my undergraduate in Creative Non-Fiction Writing from Pacific Lutheran University. I am a native of Mount Vernon, and I enjoy singing and running.
I have a great passion in creating lifelong learners in an increasingly global world, and I look forward to the educational and personal growth that will develop in my classroom.
I firmly believe in the power of communication, so I will make it a priority to post upcoming assignments details, prompts, and deadlines in a timely manner. I will be updating this information on Canvas, which is an online tool students can access here, on the Everett School District Website: https://www.everettsd.org/Page/31098. Please remember that a sign in is required to access your student Canvas profile, and the information I post on it. Canvas is increasingly utilized by colleges in Washington state, and is a convenient place to consolidate information. If you, or your student, have issues accessing this, please let me know.
If you have any questions about Canvas or about your student's success in my class, I am best able to respond via email, at firstname.lastname@example.org. Please do not hesitate to reach out, and I will try my best to do the same.
I am honored to have your student in my class this year and am looking forward to a year full of learning, growth, and development.
