WELCOME to our 2020-2021 School Year!
My name is Mrs. Lizarraga, and I also go by Mrs. L.
I look forward to the many ways of teaching all of my 2nd and 3rd grade students in our combination class! As we start off this new school year with the challenge of Distance Learning, we can all work together with kindness and care for ourselves and each other. I love teaching at our school, I have taught 16 years here at Mt. Pleasant Elementary. Mt. Pleasant is full of inspiring teachers, hard-working scholars, and their supportive families!
When I am not working with my scholars and families, I love writing, listening to music, adventuring with friends and family, trying new things, and relaxing at the beach! For now-during our Shelter In Place, I read, write, listen to music, Zoom with family and friends, take walks with SIP friends, and I have now registered to try my first 10K this fall!
I look forward to learning and using Canvas with you. Until then, I will be using Email to stay in contact with you. I will also use ClassDojo, and have greatly appreciated this mode of communication with parents and families of my scholars. Please feel free to join me there, get class info, and contact me through messages. You can also contact me through my work email: firstname.lastname@example.org. And I even have a Google Voice phone number that you can contact me with text messages on my computer if that works best for you. Please contact me anytime with your questions, concerns, and ideas!
