    Welcome to my webpage. I have been an educator for the Okanogan School District since
    1985. I have worked in Special Education, Title 1, First Grade, and am presently teaching
    Kindergarten. I am blessed to have Jim, 2 daughters, and 4 grandkids. I
    have lived in Okanogan all of my life. I am happy to be your child's Kindergarten teacher
    and we will have a great year!

    The packets I have sent are for extra practice and can be done at your leisure. I added a
    link titled Choice Board on this page. Please do as many of the fun activities as you can for
    the week. Each week I'll add a new board. You can send me a picture or 1-2 minute video
    of your child's products to my school email address. Doesn't the Choice Board look fun? I look forward to
    seeing the products. 
    In the link to the left titled Websites I have many fun sites for you to choose from. The
    sites named Epic and Splashlearn have assignments for the students to do. Starfall has
    many fun reading and math activities, and I encourage you to try the Readworks Article A day too! Happy learning!

    ZOOM Office Hours: Mondays 2:00-2:30 and Wednesdays 2:00-2:30
    The ZOOM meeting invites will appear in your email and the ID and Password
    are the same for both days. If you keep one Monday link and one Wednesday
    link you can use them over and over. During my Office Hours, just hit the join
    button to join our meeting. If you don't see the invite in the inbox, please
    look in your other folders such as Junk and Clutter to make sure you don't
    miss the zoom meeting invite. 
    I hope to see you at our Monday zoom meeting with your Cheerios Bracelet 
    you created after seeing my video. On Wednesday, Mrs. Sheeley will be here
    to do another Art lesson with you. It's your choice whether or not to join
    the meetings, but they are super fun and we are counting them as attendance.
