Ms. Roth's Virtual Classroom:
Hello 5th grade families!
Welcome back! I hope you have had a great summer and are all doing well during these unpredictable times. My name is Kama Roth and I am super excited to begin my teaching career teaching your children at Dewey! Teaching has been a goal and a dream of mine since I was a little girl. I am a great example of "life happening", perseverance and accomplishing what you set your mind to. Boy do I have stories. And now I am here and have the opportunity to love on these amazing young people.
My goals for the school year are to foster a trusting relationship with each student and their family. I am also excited to either plant a seed of the love of learning or cultivate a previously planted seed. I am excited at the possibilities of what this school year can bring. I am optimistic that change will happen and light bulbs will not only turn on but will shine brightly. The possibilities are endless!
In order to prepare for our first quarter of virtual learning, I will be providing information to families on this website as well as through Microsoft Teams. The students that were in a SLPS school in the spring should already be familiar with the Teams platform. I know that this may not be the way we traditionally view the start the school year, but I know that with consistent, open communication and participation we will not only get through this, but we will thrive!
Some of the things I am most passionate about are as follows (in no particular order):
- Being an anti-racist
- Those I love
- Hard Work
- Doing your best at everything you do
I can’t wait to spend the next year learning and growing with your child!
To log onto Microsoft Teams go to Portal.office.com
- Use the username to “log on” (example: email@example.com*note it’s different than the email)
- It will take you to a secondary log in-do the same as step 1
- It will take you to a page that will show multiple apps-Teams is the one we will be using.
- Don’t hesitate to contact me with questions if you need help!
Monday, Tuesday, Wednesday and Friday - 2:20-3:10
