My Homework App/ Google Classroom

This year My Homework App will be the main way to communicate with students during the school year. I will post daily homework assignments, upcoming quizzes and tests, and announcements. I will also utilize Google Classroom to post slides from classes when applicable and any homework assignments that they can turn in electronically.

As a parent or guardian, you can also sign up to receive updates about what I post on Google Classroom. If you would like to sign up for this information, please email me ( with the subject “Google Classroom” and let me know your child’s name, as well as which email(s) you want to use to receive notifications. If you would like access to My Homework App, as a parent, you can create an account and join the same classes as your student.

Learning Links

Khan Academy – Videos, examples, and practice problems to help students become proficient in math (and a number of other subjects as well). Middle school students have Khan Academy accounts, which they made at the beginning of the year under my supervision, using their school Google accounts. They have me listed as a coach, so I am aware of their time spent on Khan Academy, as well as their progress on different topics.
