Ms. Gomez's Class Page

Hello, My Beautiful Scholars!

I hope you are doing well! I miss you all terribly and I look forward to the day when we can all go back to our amazing classroom community! But until then, I will continue to support you and help you learn valuable English skills through our various online resources as we practice social distancing to keep our families and ourselves happy and healthy. 

Every week we will continue to practice indispensable reading, writing, listening, and speaking skills in conjunction with new technological skills in order to become better 21st-century communicators, advocates, and researchers. I am so excited to see the amazing online discussions, projects, and essays we create together during this time! 

Because this is a new experience for all of us, I know that the transition to online learning may take time for us to master and that there might be obstacles, big and small, that we may have to overcome. That being said, just know that I am here for all of you for anything that you might need during this time. Whether you need help on an assignment/class or simply just need someone to talk to, I am here. You can always reach me through Schoology, the Remind App, my email and my google voice number! 

Take care and hope to check-in with all of you soon!

<3 Ms. Gomez
