About Me

My Teaching Philosophy

 

Teaching is not just a career for me, it is my passion! I believe in empowering children with the gift of knowledge. I have a strong passion to educate young minds and to help them blossom into well rounded, responsible, and successful individuals. I actively engage their eager minds by incorporating a variety of manipulative, enjoyable activities, and cooperative learning projects. In addition, I tailor lesson plans to meet their diverse interests, as well as demonstrate direct connections between the classroom and everyday life. I look forward to building a relationship with each student’s parents on a regular basis to promote parent participation in the educational process, reinforce education at home, and boost students’ self-confidence and self-esteem.

Chromebook pick up schedule Thursday 3/16

Hello parents,

 

Mrs. Estrada sent out an email to you regarding the day and time to pick up your child’s Chromebook.  Our class is scheduled between 10:00 – 11:00 am on Thursday 3/26.

 

If you decide to check out a Chromebook for your child, please download and fill out the waiver form prior to your arrival.  This will make the process a lot faster and smoother.  However, I believe there will be forms available at one of the stations should you forget to bring the completed form or are unable to print one at home.  Your child should know his/her assigned Chromebook number from our class.  I’ve included the class roster with students’ number in the attachment just in case you need it.

 

On a different note, our Zoom lessons have been going well.  The kids seem to be adjusting accordingly.  We often go over the time that I scheduled because I want to be sure that all the kids understand the lessons.  I leave it up to them to decide to leave the lessons if needed.

 

Special Zoom schedule for this week.

Thursday 3/16 is 1-2:30pm. (I’m helping in the morning for the Chromebook distribution.)

No Zoom Lessons on Friday 3/17 (I’m helping in the morning for the Chromebook distribution and in training for the afternoon.)

 

Respectfully,

 

Mrs. Vaughan

 

Parents Zoom meeting 3/23/20 at 7:30-8:30pm

Hello parents,
I will conduct a parents zoom meeting tonight.  Please join in if you are available.  It's the same Zoom ID number as the kids zoom meeting.
 
Thank you.

Zoom Lessons

Hello parents,

 

I hope everyone is safe and healthy.  As of now, it doesn’t look like school will be open anytime soon.  Until then, I will be conducting two Zoom online lessons daily, from Monday to Friday at 10:00 -11:00 a.m. and also from 1:00 – 2:00 p.m.

 

This will be a learning curve for your child and myself.  My plan is an hour for Math and an hour for ELA daily.  You are welcome to join our FIRST  Zoom meeting  tomorrow at 10-11 am or 1-2 pm if you like.  In the future, I will post assignments on their Google Classroom account accordingly.  I will inform you of the assignments and when the assignments are due.  As of now, I have 9 students who have not turned in their Current Events project  which was due last Friday the 20th.  If your child is one of those students, please be sure to have your child complete the assignment as soon as possible.
