Introduction

I have been a teacher with Rockyview for 15 years and have been at Meadowbrook for five. I am teaching Science 86, 8 & 8, option classes and Health 8.

Parent Tips

Set aside a time and a  quiet distraction free place for your child to get homework done. Usually in Science they have a few days to work on assignment and rarely ever get next day homework. Even if they do not have any explicit work they can always read and or review material. Creating this habit will serve them well in their future educational endevours.

Students can log you into their Google accounts at RVS. You can see their work there. It is private to other students but certainly parents are allowed to view what is being done on their Google drives. They can also help you get on Google Classroom if you are having trouble withthe links provided.

CHECK Power School every week. I try to update marks every two weeks depending on due dates so with other classes their should always be new data. If youare seeing a mark you don't like - ask you student first why the mark might be as it is. If that does not get a satisfactory response then email me at the provided address.
