Thank you to those who have brought snack to the class. It is very much appreciated. Our snacks are low. If you are able, please sign up in Track it forward for dates you can bring it in.
It’s official ! I, Ms. April will be the New lead teacher! I am so excited to take this role and have many exciting plans for the future of these amazing kids! Education is a lifelong process. It’s a journey and an adventure!
Let me share a little about myself so you know who you have in trusted your peeps to. I graduated from Weber State University with a BS degree. I have homeschooled for the past 14 years and taught in a local common wealth school classes in the U.S. Constitution, Shakespeare, Pyramid Project – finding truth through science and mathematics, and various sciences. Before that I headed up children classes for boys, “The Knights of Freedom”, and girls, “Liberty girls”.
When I am not in the classroom, I love learning from nature! I love hiking, backpacking, and biking. I love to learn about different cultures and have traveled a bit. I love art and music and dabble in both. My home is an ongoing art project!
This new adventure may have a few bumps in the beginning …middle….etc. But doesn’t every good adventure worth telling?! Thank you for joining me in this epic one!
I want to set clear expectations for the children that you as parents can help with at home. We have work cycles that give the children plenty of time to complete a number of works. I will be going over these expectations and how your child is doing and how we as parent and mentor can help your child reach their potential. If you have not signed up for PT conferences, please do so or make arrangements with me.
