With the upcoming school shut down, I have created four weeks of assignments to ensure that the educational process continues smoothly.
My name is Carrie Sherman and I have been teaching at Perth Amboy High School since October of 2006. I have had the joy of teaching 10th, 11th, 12th, and this is my sixth year instructing 9th-grade students within the 9th Grade Academy. My goal for all students is to help them develop into effective thinkers, writers, and independently productive learners.
I utilize Google Drive and Google Classroom for many of my assignments. If at any point a packet is lost, or a student needs an extra copy of an assignment, they have full access to everything. I also include links and PDF files for each Unit of Study. This allows my students to access videos, audio files, and films which will help them better understand the concepts and skills which we are utilizing in the classroom. I am able to send parents access to my Google Classroom so that you can see assignments, files, and grades which your child has completed. Another platform I often use for communication is Remind. This is a website that has an app, that allows for direct, nearly instant communication between student and teacher. I will happily accept parent requests to join my classroom account. Each student has access to the code via a Google Classroom post.
I highly recommend accessing Infinite Campus on a regular basis, and having open conversations with students ( your children), so that we can work as a parent-teacher team to help the students here in Perth Amboy find a productive and successful path to a bright future.
