Welcome Patrick Henry Students and Families,
My name is Ribbon Williams and I am excited to be your teacher this school year! As we embark on unprecedented times, together we will learn how best to navigate through challenges. During this time of social distancing I want to ensure that students continue to have access to high-quality curriculum and instruction. Due to this being a digital platform in a virtual learning environment you may need a lot of support to ensure you are successful so it’s all hands on deck to help you! We will also have many great activities, read a ton of fantastic books and have loads of fun! I cannot wait to get to know you and your family!
In our classroom, I believe it is important for you to feel safe and respected. We will work all year long to establish a classroom filled with friendships, pride, trust and high self-esteem. I want you to feel that you are in a place where you can comfortably be yourself all while learning and growing to be the best you can be. I also believe that the students, parents, and teacher must work as a team to achieve the goals in front of us. I am so happy to be a part of that team with you!
I will tell you a little bit about myself here but I will also post an introduction PowerPoint as well as a video on my SLPS webpage and my YouTube channel to give you a snapshot into my life. I have been in education for 5 years. I have 6 children, 3 grandchildren and I am a very proud member of the community that Patrick Henry serves.
I’m looking forward to an exciting, new, and productive year.
Ms. Ribbon Williams Ed.S
