Hello Everyone,
 
In order to deliver excellent service, my office hours are as follows. These times indicate my availability for responses to emails, calls, Microsoft TEAMS interactions, and any other communication that may arise. I look forward to engaging with you all 😊

Checking-In :)

Greetings!
 
Please check your invitation to Teams in your Office365 inbox. The links for each class have also been emailed via Skyward. I have additionally added each student individually with only about 11 students total who either did not have an email linked, or I was simply unable to locate it. I am troubleshooting the issue.
 
We will be using Teams as a way to communicate during this period of time, and I look forward to meeting with you there :)
 
I MISS YOU ALL SOMETHING FIERCE!
