    Professional Biography
    Tumwater Hill has been an amazing place to teach since I moved here from North Carolina in 2006.  I have been teaching for 14 years and enjoy every minute of it.  I also have two children that both attend THE.  :)

    Dear Families,

    Welcome to unknown territory for all of us. I have done my best to prepare work for your student at home and have prepped longer than needed out of sheer overthinking. I have included many activities that students can work on at home. I have shown kids how to log in to GOOGLE CLASSROOM.  Kids can communicate with each other safely on this site as well as me. This is for students only to interact, not parent/teacher communication. I will be answering emails/BLOOMZ messages daily. Google Classroom Code: dlz2xhz

    Math - I included addition/subtraction/time/money/story problems in the math packet I sent home with each kid.  These sheets are GREAT at home practice that the kids can do on their own.

    Math Prodigy class code: 2672FA

    Writing-  I included March/April writing prompts for your child to work on.  Please remember to include a topic sentence, details, and a closing!  

    Reading - Practice sight words and spelling words weekly!  Log in to Wonders and do the games on the website that coordinate with our weekly learning skills.

    EPIC READING- We use this site in class. It has so many free books online and quizzes. KIDS LOVE IT!  Here is our class code: BRK4602

    Spelling:  Please log on to spelling city each week to practice the weekly spelling list.  I will send a message on Bloomz telling everyone which list to complete. 


    Your student may also go onto IReady for math and reading lessons. This is accessed with your students email and their ID code. Students can get to IReady through this path:  Their log in cards are in their folders.

    I have also sent home the QR code with this paper and if your technology is able they can use the QR login instead of their email.
