Hi my name is Michelle Pappas. I have been teaching in Adams 12 since 1993 in various roles from a first through third grade teacher and as a special education teacher at various schools. I am enjoying my role here at Centennial as a Learning Specialist. The students have proven to be hard workers and the community great partners. I thoroughly enjoy the learning journey with each student and taking them to their full potential.
As we enter into this time of remote learning I will be providing students with IEP's access and opportunities for their specialized instruction through a digital platform. This will involve a learning curve for us all and grace and patience will be needed on both sides. This will be a partnership but as we all learn the goal is to keep your child engaged and working towards their goals.
Here is some information to access for the coming weeks:
We will also be holding IEP meetings online. If you have an upcoming IEP meeting this school year, I will be contacting you directly on how we will hold the meeting.
I will provide supplemental lessons for reading, writing and mathematics, depending on what is on your child's IEP. These lessons will either be through my own Google Classroom OR assigned to your student in their general education Google Classroom (or Dojo for K-1st graders). I will monitor attendance by your student's submissions for assignments. The assignments will be able to be completed any time throughout the week. New assignments/lessons for the entire week will be provided on Mondays. These assignments will help me to monitor your student's IEP goals.
Mrs. Pappas's Online Office Hours:
These are the times to contact me for a video chat. If your student has questions (or if you have questions!), I will be available to reteach, answer questions or model instruction. To access video chat, we can use Zoom, Dojo or Google Hangouts. If none of these hours work for you, just send me an email to set something up.
Monday, Wed, Friday 9-11
Tuesday, Thursday 1-2
Please feel free to email or send a message via Class Dojo at anytime.
