It has been our intention to return to some form of in-person learning as soon as it was determined by our health departments that it is both safer and feasible to do so. On September 21, during our virtual town hall with county health department officials, we reviewed the current coronavirus data for our community. To this end, our county health agency partners have made the recommendation that it is now appropriate for us to return to a hybrid learning model. Click here to watch the virtual town hall discussion about the data guiding our decisions and current levels in our community. Beginning Monday, October 5, we will be implementing a hybrid in-person learning schedule for all students who are not currently enrolled in the LaunchED program. LaunchED student’s schedules will not be impacted by this change.
Cómo usted sabe, nuestra intención ha sido volver a alguna forma de aprendizaje en persona tan pronto cómo nuestros departamentos de salud determinen que es más seguro y factible hacerlo. Anoche, durante nuestra junta virtual con los funcionarios del departamento de salud del condado, revisamos los datos actuales del coronavirus para nuestra comunidad. Con esto, nuestros asociados de las agencias de salud pública del condado han recomendado que ahora es apropiado que regresemos a un modelo de aprendizaje híbrido. Haga clic aquí para ver la discusión de la junta virtual sobre los datos que guían nuestras decisiones y los niveles actuales en nuestra comunidad. Comenzando el lunes 5 de octubre, estaremos implementando un programa de aprendizaje híbrido en persona para todos los estudiantes que no estén inscritos actualmente en el programa LaunchED. Los horarios de estudiantes LaunchED no serán impactados por este cambio.
I began my teaching career as a 5th grade teacher at Eagle Crest in 2010. I knew right away that Eagle Crest was a very special school. The staff, students, parents, and community were (and continue to be) absolutely phenomenal. After teaching 5th grade for three years, I moved down to 3rd grade. The summer following my year of teaching 3rd grade, my husband and I welcomed our second child, Lake, into our family, and I decided to take a one-year leave of absence to stay home with her and my (at the time) 2 year old son, Fisher. After a wonderful year at home with my two kiddos, I was feeling refreshed and ready to come back to the world of teaching. However, I have to admit, when I found out that I would be teaching 1st grade when I came back, I was a little terrified. Ha! But, with the support from many, I absolutely adore teaching the little ones! I am in awe of their joy and thirst for knowledge. I am inspired by their creativity and wonder. I look forward to seeing their beautiful faces everyday. Yep, it feels good to be back! When I’m not teaching, I enjoy spending time with my husband, Matt, my son, Fisher, and daughter, Lake. We love taking lazy weekend nature walks in the open space behind our house, catching fish at Walden Ponds, or going for a hike on Rabbit Mountain. We also love to travel! This past summer we went on a trip to Moab, Florida, the Sand Dunes (where my family is) and Rhode Island (where my husband’s family is). If we aren’t out and about, you can find us hanging out in our backyard BBQ-ing, watching our dog, Caddis, chase squirrels, our cat, Lynx lounging in the sun, or our chickens (that’s right, we have chickens!), searching for tasty worms and taking dirt baths.
