I am going on my sixth year of teaching and really love the work that I am so lucky to be able to do each day. I am very excited to have the chance to work with you and your student this year! 🙂 (Also, feel free to just call me Ms. Pierce – it’s a lot easier!)
It’s going to be a weird and, at times, a challenging year; but I believe if we give our best effort to communicate, work together, help keep each other safe by following health protocols, and give each other a little grace as we all adjust to these unprecedented times – we’ll get through this just fine.
I am always happy to help however I can, so don’t hesitate to reach out – doing so is so important, especially when I can’t see every student each day.
Be aware, that all elements of my courses this year will be ran through Microsoft Teams and students will complete all major class functions on this platform (e.g. find assignments, find course resources, turn in assignments, and communicate with me and their peers). This will be true for both in-person and remote learners. It is critical that students check their student e-mail and Microsoft Teams each day for important communications, schedules, and updates.
I will be available during school hours this year from 7:50 AM to 3:15 PM. If you contact me after hours, I will get back to you the next day. 🙂
All the very best,
