I am teaching 16 Grade 4 students for the 2016-2017 school year. I teach English Language Arts(ELA), Math, Social Studies, Physical Education and Health.
I am the Treaty Catalst teacher for KCS. LivingSky School Division is working hard to uphold the Truth and Reconcilliation mandates of ensuring that our students have a deep understanding about Treaty relationships, both historically and today. The first workshop teachers will be participating in is on Septmeber 26th, where we will learning from authors Linda Goulet and Keith Goulet. Their book is called "Learning from Each other" and looks at Educational theories to find ways to improve student engagment and learning.
I am also the Math Coach for KCS as we try to meet our learning goal that 85% of Grade K-12 students will be meeting expectations for their Grade level.My role involves team teaching, accessing resources, collection and sharing of data, and assisting teachers to help meet individual learning needs through differntiation.
I have a Grade 4 parent email list that I use for communication purposes. Another great way ot staying informed is though the KCS website. One idea is to set your internet browser to the KCS homepage so it pops up everytime you open the internet.
Or, join the KCS facebook page.
Or, watch for the school newsletter at the beginning of each month.
Are you looking for even more links to great websites? Go to the KCS Homepage and click on LIBRARY. There are great resources to help students search for Information that is reliable and accurate.
