Message: Welcome Parents and students! I am excited to be back for another year at Soldan with our amazing team. I like to spend my free time traveling when I can or spending it outside in nice weather. I also spend a lot of time with my wonderful debate team here at the school. Don’t hesitate to contact me if you need anything.

 Bio: I graduated with my B.A. in English Education from the University of Missouri – St. Louis and worked as a paraprofessional in a rural district until I came here to Soldan in 2016.  also just finished my Masters in Educational Leadership with SLU last semester!

  • Dear Scholars and Parents, 

    I know that some of you have addressed concerns to me and other teachers about the work loadtime frame, and assignments given recently. I wanted to take the time to respond to some concerns to at least let you know why I am doing what I do. If you still have additional concerns please, as always, feel free to contact me.  

     

    I'm sorry that you feel overwhelmed with all the work that is being assigned. While I cannot speak for other teachers, I can tell you where I stand. The district has asked that teachers of core classes provide 5-10 hours of work per week. The idea behind this is that you are in each classrooms a minimum of 3 hours a week and having teachers every other Fridaybrings that total to almost 5 hours on those weeks. (The idea behind 10 hours is that teachers should be assigning homework as well - which you know i rarely did, seemingly doing you a disservice now). I think part of why you may feel that you "didn't get all this work while in the classroom" is because you now are doing it all independently as opposed to with your teachers or as a class.  This in part is why teachers hold daily office hours. For you to chat with them and ask questions. 
     

    Knowing this, I typically try to assign work that should take you less then 5 hours for you to do for my class. We could have easily read 20 pages and done the question work for this novel within our class time. I also try to stay consistent in posting work either on Sunday or monday morning in preparation for the week. Just because the work is assigned on sunday does not mean you need to start it on the weekend. If you are receiving notifications of this that are bothering you, I am sure there is a way to turn them off on teams.  

    As far as due dates. The work for the current week will typically always be due that friday night. I try to make this simple. I understand that your other teachers probably have a different of doing things with different due dates. If you are having trouble, I suggest that you create a calendar, either electronically or on paper, of the weeks assignments and due dates. If you list all of your assignments it may help you feel less overwhelmed to help you prioritize your time on these assignments. Get a schedule and stick to it.  

    This is going to take getting used to on both ends, but I think the big thing you will learn is time management. And if you plan on attending college, this will be good practice for it! 

  • Happy Easter everyone,
