Mrs. Kristen Ward
Welcome to 7th Grade ELA- From a Distance
History in the making, one huge experiment, distance learning at a snap of the fingers; we are in it! As we lean on each other to figure out how to best educate 7th graders from a distance, please know that I welcome your feedback. I will do my best to support your student through these uncharted times.
I will communicate with parents on Monday through Skyward-emails. Additionally, I will send a second email later in the week. I understand that parents are receiving a lot of emails from teachers. Your child has a minimum of six teachers, and each one of them wants to make sure that their students are happy, healthy, and getting their educational needs met. I will communicate with students through Microsoft Teams. Finally, I will send a weekly schedule of lessons and due dates on the Schedule and Due Dates tab in order to help students stay organized.
Online Office Hours:
I will host office hours from 9:00-11:00 I am available for video chat, conversations (Teams), or email. Students and parents can reach me through Microsoft 365 Teams or through email at email@example.com.
Tuesdays & Thursdays Video Chat Discussions:

Welcome to my brief introduction. I started working for the Cascade School District in 2007. I have taught sixth grade, ninth grade, and 6-12th grade English Language Learners. While I love working with 7th graders, I also love being outside. I look forward to sharing a great year with you. Remember, pick up a good book... or an eReader!
