Hello to all parents/guardians and students! 


Thank you for taking the time to visit my class website. I will have information on here and will be continually updating this information over the the next few days and weeks regarding how we will go forth with digital learning. Although this distance learning will be new for us and will take time for us to adjust to, I’m certain that we will make the best of this situation!


Please know that I am available at any time. Do not hesitate to email me or contact me through any avenue available to you. I will soon be available through the Remind App and Google Classroom. I will send more information later as I set everything up. 


As I prepare lessons and activities, I will also be working on various ways for you to access these materials so that it is as convenient for you as possible. For now, this website will be up and running, and should be a way for you to access any information you need. 


Parents, please know that we are working hard to continue your child’s education! Students, know that your teachers will continue to care about you, as well as your education, through these next few weeks. We are still here for you! 


Be sure to click on each tab below for updated information! Thank you!

I will be setting up Google Classroom and making phone calls this week. If you received a text message to join the Remind App, please consider accepting. This will allow ALL core-subject teachers to communicate with you (the parent) and students at once. It will also allow you to ask questions at any time and reach any of your child's core-subject teachers. Thank you so much for your continued effort to help us educate your children. We appreciate your willingness for open communication.


Guided Reading/Fast Forward/Reading Assistant Plus

Fast Forward

For students who are on Fast Forward, they may continue to access Fast Forward from home, if they are able. The protocol will stay the same. Students can complete their Fast Forward games 3 days a week (30 minutes each day). It is up to the student which days of the week (Mon-Fri) they want to work in FF.

Reading Assistant Plus is also optional. 


Reading Assistant Plus


For students who are not on Fast Forward, they still have the option of using Reading Assistant Plus. Each assignment should take no more than 30 minutes. Students will need to record themselves reading, so they will need to use a computer or device that has a mic (make sure to do a mic check before beginning). Headphones are also an option.


Here is a tutorial video on how to use Reading Assistant Plus.

U.S. History


History activities will be provided and will be posted on the Dickinson ISD webpage. Every Monday, parents can access the 5th Grade Social Studies assignments for the week. Students will choose 1 history assignments of the 3 provided and complete them. I will also have other materials posted on Google Classroom to assist students on these assignments. Please check my Google Classroom daily for support lessons. I can be reached through Google Classroom, email, or by phone if your child needs assistance with the work. Check my contact tab for information on how to reach me.
