    Dec. 3, 2021

    We acknowledge that Glencoe Elementary sits upon traditional land of  the Clackamas, Cowlitz, Chinook and other tribes, some of which are now in the  Confederated Tribes of the Grand Ronde. We want to respect and honor them by committing to take care of this land. 

    Friendly Reminders:
    * Friday, Dec. 17: Spirit Day= PJ Day. You can also bring a stuffed toy, as long as it fits into your backpack.
    * Thanks for remembering to return your COVID tests on Tuesdays.
    * Bring your charged Chromebook and headphones/earbuds daily. Thanks for charging them overnight at home.

    What were we doing...
    (Webpage is updated daily, over lunch time)

    Math: We looked at skip counting to use in multiplication. Do the green pages, P. 151-152, as homework.
    Language Arts: more work on our Opinion essays today. Several kids are done, and working on a new topic for a second Opinion paper. In our Book Clubs, we looked at the ending, filled out three paragraphs explaining our thinking with the latest Book Club work-page, and spent time finishing up the reading.
    Words their Way: we did spelling tests today.
    Science/Health: In health, we looked at how to design a "chef's plate" with our new healthy thinking.
    Social Studies: We're examining Native American perspectives on the traditional history of Thanksgiving, and we're reading aloud "Indian No More," written by a Native Oregonian, about tribal relocation that occurred in Oregon.

    Over the weekend: Do the math homework page!

    --About Me--

    My goal is to bring a slice of the outside world to my students, and help them move forward in their educational advancement. In more than three decades of working in Education, I taught in Minnesota, Oregon, Africa and Central America before coming to Glencoe. This school has a great staff, students who are generally self-motivated to learn, and many supportive parents concerned with student progress and achievement. I taught nearly 20years in 4th grade, moved up to 5th grade one year, and then moved back to 4th grade.

    I have a Master's of Arts in Teaching degree from Willamette University and a Bachelor of Arts degree from OSU. I enjoy reading, music (guitar, piano and drums) and writing. I have published a fantasy trilogy (The Tarra Tales), which can be found in our school library. My wife is a principal for North Clackamas School District, and we have three children: 1 getting his PhD, 1 working for Doc Martins in their executive office, and 1 in the U. of O. Honors College.
