    Please let me know if you need the Google Classroom Code.



    Thank you for your flexiblility as we have moved into distance learning through Google Classroom. All classes have and will continue to have work assigned through the classroom. 

    Here is the plan for Ms. Straley's classes:

    Period 1 and 3: Make sure to log into Google Classroom EVERY Friday and continue working through your assigned unit of insturction.
    Ms. Straley will be available every Friday via Zoom from 1-2pm to answer any questions regarding the content. I am also available via email or Google Classroom.

    Period 4: Mrs. Scott and I will be available for check in's Monday-Thursday at 10 each morning via Zoom. Friday's we will be holding a class meeting via Zoom and continuing discussion of Social/Emotional learning.

    Period 5: We will be holding Zoom meetings on Monday and Wednesday at 11:00 to continue working through our curriculum. If you are unable to make the meeting, the audio of the meeting will be uploaded to the classroom for you to listen to and the assignments are assignment through Google Classroom.

    Period 6: At the beginning of each week, you will be assigned a writing assignment that is to be turned in by Friday. You are also to complete 20 minutes of Moby Language two days during the week. This is a total of at least 40 minutes of Moby Language.

    Period 7: There will be a journal check in assigned each Friday. You will also be provided with some activities to complete and reflect on throughout the week.

    I am currently a teacher at Redington Jr./Sr. School.  I teach two sections of MS Language Arts Strategies, one section of 6th grade reading/writing, co-teach one section of 6th grade Connections and one section of MS Leadership.  

    I moved to Alaska in 2004 after graduating from Grand Valley State University in Michigan.  I figured if I could not get a job within an hour of family, I might as well have an adventure. So, I packed up my stuff and headed across the country riding shotgun with my grandpa and headed "North, to Alaska."  

    My first year teaching was spent in the Anchorage School District teaching students with severe and profound disabilities, followed by 12 years at Teeland.  There, I was a resource teacher for 7th grade, taught on a specialized team in 6th grade with a focus on basic writing skills, served as a special education teacher, taught Read180 for two years before transferring to 7th grade social studies.  I finally landed in 6th grade social studies and I loved it! This year, I am teaching multiple sections of intervention classes.

    This is my third year here at Redington!  I’m excited for this year!

    I love getting outside and going on adventures with friends.  I discovered how much fun it is to kayak a couple years ago! So last summer I bought one of my very own. I love spending time with family, which means that I will venture out of state to Michigan once or twice a year.
