I hope that everyone is staying safe and healthy! I am aware that this is a challenging time for everyone, and I hope that we are all finding ways to bring joy and comfort to our lives.
I have been continuing my virtual lessons using the Second Step program. In our K - 5 classes, we have been learning about assertiveness, reviewing listening skills, and focusing on different ways to show our respect. We will also begin learning about how to handle stressful situations. In grades 6 - 8, we worked on goal setting, bullying awareness, and started to think about our future selves. I am also going to focus on coping skills, stress management, and strategies to handle anxiety.
We are lucky enough to have Detective Laird back this year to offer a virtual presentation on Cyber-safety to parents on December 10 at 7:30pm (details can be found below). He will also be recording a presentation that we will share with the middle school students!
Please remember that I am here to support the students however I can. I am available to meet via zoom if a student needs help or just wants to talk! Don't hesitate to reach out if I can support you in any way. Email is the best way to reach me while we are fully remote.
Please continue to read below for some information that I hope you will find useful! My website is updated regularly as well. You will find my virtual office there, and is updated regularly with links to resources and lessons.
