WELCOME to the 2020-2021 School Year! I am SUPER excited to meet you all! Hybrid learning will require us to be flexible, patient and help each other along the way. Together and safely we are going to have fun interacting and learning. At the bottom of the page there are 3 QR Codes which will link you to some of the platforms we will be using.
My name is Ms. Holmes. I am the General Education Teacher in the Inclusion Pre-K Classroom here at Hodgen Tech Academy. I have taught for 27 years in Early Childhood Education. I have 23 years of experience as a preschool teacher. I have also taught Kindergarten, first grade and second grade. I have been teaching in Saint Louis Public Schools for 6 years. I am grateful to have the opportunity to do what I love, TEACH others. My goal is not only to facilitate scholars to become critical thinkers and problem solvers, but to also instill life skills in them. Being respectful, responsible and maintaining self-control is a part of the daily expectations. Together as we, parents and myself, support each other and the scholars, we will create future leaders.
To all of my parents, guardians, and scholars:
We will communicate through the use of ClassDojo, Microsoft Teams, email, by phone and here on my Webpage. Using those platforms we will have a two-way communication. We can make posts, share class stories, class assignments, notification of upcoming events, and send private questions/concerns to me. Please stay safe and take care of yourselves! Hopefully we will get back to business as usual soon. Please visit the SLPS Website Links tab to click on the link for the different ways we will be communicating or you can scan the QR Codes below.Thanks for your support!
