Dear students and families,

Our agenda for the week will continue to be posted on this blog under the class name.  You can find the name of our class on this page to your right, under the heading, ‘Recent Posts.’  We will continue to use Goggle Classroom for Language Arts.  As we move to online learning, we will also use this platform for assignments in Math Support.  Goggle Classroom codes for the class can be found below (under the March 31st entry) and in an email sent today.  Zoom codes will be linked in Goggle Classroom to ensure security.  Beginning Monday, April 6th, our schedule will be as follows:

Zoom Office Hours

Period 3  (Support)               1:30 – 1:55

September 2019,

Welcome students and families!  You can check this blog to view our daily agenda and learning targets.  You can find the name of our class on this page to your right, under the heading, ‘Recent Posts.’ 

This year marks my nineteenth year of teaching.  I love it!  I’ve taught at a number of different schools in the Eugene/Springfield area.  This is my third year at Cal Young. My husband teaches Science at Sheldon High School and our daughter is in 11th grade at South and Sheldon (that’s a longer story).  We have a black lab named Gracie.   I love spending time with my family and friends and being outdoors.  Some of my favorite things to do are biking, running and skiing.  Some of my favorite things to do with students are reader’s theater, current events and all kinds of writing.

I enjoy being a part of the Cal Young community.  I teach Language Arts Foundations and Math Support. I am also the case manager for students on IEPs.  I can be reached at ivan_m@4j.lane.edu or (541)790-6461.  Please don’t hesitate to reach out with any questions or concerns.
