Snowshoe Elementary Looping Teacher K-1 Room #9 Bachelor of Arts in Education Reading Endorsement Grades K-12
Mrs. Jessica Brown
I am originally from Emmett, Idaho. I graduated from Boise State University with a Bachelor of Arts in Education and a secondary endorsement in Reading Grades K-12 and moved to Alaska in 2000. I have been teaching in Alaska ever since. I am proud to call Alaska my second home. My husband and I have 7 children together and we enjoy working and raising our kids in the Mat-Su! I am thoroughly excited for a fantastic year!
I would like to share some important information about how to access our class's online learning system. Here is how our class logs in:
Google Classroom: https://classroom.google.com/h
Username: Your child's initials plus ID number @apps.matsuk12.us
Please let me know if you need your student ID number.
For example, if your child was John Smith and his ID was 139992, his username would be firstname.lastname@example.org
Password: Your child's password is the same as the one they use every day at school: alaska
Once they sign in, they have access to their entire Google account: Gmail, Google Docs, Google Classroom, and all the Google products. They easiest way to navigate is by clicking on the nine dots (3x3 array) icon next to their name in the upper right-hand corner.
I will be posting assignments and links to their apps they should use to help students keep a structure to their day and so that we don't get behind. We have been asked by the district to limit seat work to under two hours, so these assignments and/or links will be short and many will be optional. My goal is to help you keep your children productive and learning, and to make sure that I'm not overwhelming or burdening anyone during this stressful and uncertain time. Again, my object is to provide structure IF it's needed and not create any undue burden on already burdened families! Feel free to have your child wait until later this week or next week to start online learning if that suits your needs better. Finally, if you are in need of a chromebook for learning at home or other supplies from the school please contact me for an appointment time to get these things for you.
Questions or problems? Feel free to email me or call or text and I will get in touch as soon as possible.
Please accept my best wishes to all of you in the coming weeks. Stay healthy and safe!
