Mrs. Judd - Room 7 - Oakland Elementary School
Welcome Oakland Eagle All-Stars!
My name is Mrs. Judd and this is my 21st year teaching at Oakland. I am looking forward to this new school year where we will spend time getting to know one another. Although school looks different for all of us because of the pandemic, I am excited to meet the students I will be working with this year. I believe each child is special, unique, and has something incredible to bring to our classroom.
Oakland's theme this year is "Navigate Forward." As your navigation guide, I will do my best to support your child and you to help students be successful. I will try to make my teaching as fun as engaging as possible. Teaching remotely is very different for all of us, so I ask for an extra amount of grace as I navigate you through unchartered waters. Please know that I welcome any feedback and will consider making changes as what is best for students. Please also remember that Oakland's motto is to treat everyone with kindness. This is a great opportunity to model this for our students as we face a great challenge. How we respond in our actions and words will impact them positively if we choose to remain positive. These children need as much positivity modeled for them in this season of uncertainty. I also look forward to meeting my students and thier families families so I hope you will join me for the virtual meet and greet session on Tuesday, August 18th.
Kristine Judd is inviting you to a scheduled Zoom meeting.

My classroom theme is All-Stars because I believe everyone can shine bright. We are a team that will be working toward achieving the second-grade standards and working toward creating positive behavior and work habits that will help us grow as learners. We will become a class that not only works to shine but learns how to point out how others shine as well.
We will be implementing Remote Learning 2.0 this year, which is different from what we did in the spring. For Remote 2.0, the students will be expected to be "in attendance" from 8:30-2:30 every day. Instruction will be live, via ZOOM, for most of the day, with times included where your child would be working independently while I work with students in small groups. I will be teaching live all day, with whole class, small groups, or individuals, so I will not be available until after 2:30p.m. Your child will be expected to do all assigned work, including specials. If your child is absent, please contact me on Seesaw, and I will prepare make up work that will be homework for the following day. I do not plan to record the Zoom sessions so attendance is very important.
In order to create a climate online that will provide the most optimal atmosphere for learning, it will be important to go over the expectations to help the students respect their peers, their teachers, and the time designated for learning. The students will be involved in brainstorming ideas about what they think will help us create this climate together. We will also learn the High 5 which includes eyes watching, ears listening, brain thinking, heart caring, and hands and feet to yourself. Please talk about expectations with your child thoughout the year to encourage them to make choices that will help support them as learners. Your child may need some support at home with following these expectations consistently.

My email address is firstname.lastname@example.org. Please use the Seesaw app to communicate to me directly. I will be checking Seesaw daily. I will send my all class communication information through that management system. Please join Seesaw as soon as possible. I prefer this method of communication because I recieve so many emails a day which makes it easy to miss occassionally.
