Welcome Message:
First and foremost, welcome to my website. Thank you for stopping by. I am hoping that you will find all the necessary information here during this time in our academic history. These are such unprecedented times and having to change teaching methodologies and attitude has challenged me in many ways, both mentally and emotionally. Nonetheless, having been in the classroom for the last 24+ years has been filled with its successes and areas of improvement, and I am still excited to teach and learn with you through all of this despite the circumstances. 

***Please understand that though our classes have been utilizing technology all school year, there is still a learning curve that needs to be experienced and with that, we will learn and grow together. So, I ask for your patience during this process.

Schedule (starting 4/13/2020):
Mondays: Assignments and guidelines will be posted to Google Classroom by 10am. All assignments can and will be found in our Google Classroom. The slide deck will be posted and a REMIND message will be sent out notifying the students.

Tuesdays: Office Hours 10am-12pm During this time, I will be available to email/meet/chat/etc. to discuss grades, assignments, etc. If these hours do not work for you, we can make an appointment for another time. 

Wednesdays: What's Up Wednesday chat via Zoom [Students will need to download the Zoom app on their computer/tablet/phone] (Period 3: 10:45am-11:15am / Period 4: 11:45am-12:15pm) During this time for each respective class, I will send out a link in Google Classroom or REMIND to invite you to the chat each Wednesday. This may become modified as the school year progresses. 

***It is highly encouraged to meet during these chats since it is important to stay connected and honestly, I miss my students and the conversations that we have. I look forward to seeing you online. 

Thursdays: Office Hours 10am-12pm During this time, I will be available to email/meet/chat/etc. to discuss grades, assignments, etc. If these hours do not work for you, we can make an appointment for another time. 

Fridays: Assignments will be due via Google Classroom/Canvas/Flipgrid/etc. by 11:59 pm. The platform that will be used for submission will be posted in Google Classroom. Grades will be updated by the following week. 

Contact Info:
If you need to contact me, please email me at the following: michelle.padilla@cnusd.k12.ca.us. I will do my best to respond within 24 hours, if not sooner. Students can also contact me via REMIND, Canvas, and Google Classroom. All these platforms have been utilized throughout the school year thus far. 

Grading Expectations:

All assignments will be used to improve your grade, not harm it; however, standards and grading procedures are still in effect since the beginning of the school year. Students will need to maintain proficiency and seek advisement when not understanding. Seeing that quarter grades have been posted, it will be up to each individual student as to what they will complete. Many may and will choose not to participate based upon their current quarter grade. However, I encourage each and every HONORS student to continue their independent learning by reading, writing and participating in the the lessons that will be provided seeing that many will continue on the Honors/AP route next year.

Each assignment will have point values defined in the grade book in Q once the assignments have been posted in Google Classroom. Points for the assignments will range from 5-25 points. 

I hope that the above information answers your questions and concerns. Please do not hesitate in reaching out to me if you are experiencing any problems/issues or have other concerns that I have not addressed. We are in this together and I will do my best to support you.

Sincerely,

Michelle Padilla
Honors ELA Instructor
