Ms. Tracy Mitchell
I am originally from Pennsylvania. There I earned my undergraduate degree in Elementary and Special Education from Slippery Rock University. I began my teaching career in Richmond, Indiana in a specialized program educating students with emotional and behavioral disabilities. While there I earned my Masters in Special Education from Ball State University. After 8 years, I decided to move south. I came to East Clayton in 2005. I have taught 3rd grade for 11 years and 4th grade for 4 years.
I am so excited to begin this school year. This marks my 24th year in the classroom. I know this year will be nothing like we have ever experienced before. So, we will embark on this journey together!
It will be a pleasure meeting with you this upcoming week. Students will recieve devices, facemasks, and some beginning of the year paperwork.
Beginning Aug. 17 - Aug. 21, families will find assignments on our class website. We are doing this because some of our families will not be able to pick up devices until Friday. We want to ensure that all students are able to access our beginning activities. Families should have recieved an ivitation to join Class Dojo either by email or via a text. Those who have not joined will have invitations resent as they may have been overlooked. Students may respond to the prompt from the read aloud via Class Dojo to show daily participation. We will beging utilizing Google Classroom more the 2nd week of school when we can ensure all students ahve access.
Our class could always utilize paper prducts and cleaning materials, especially this school year.
I have also put together an Amazon Wish List. Our students & myself would love anything anyone is able to give.
It is greatly appreicated. Thank you!
