Ms. Rachel Jorgensen
Hello parents and students! My name is Rachel Jorgensen and I am a 5th Grade ELA and Science teacher. I have been teaching for 12 years in Charlotte and Sarasota Counties. I live in North Port with my son and our adorable dogs and cats. All of my students know I have a passion for science and teaching is definitely my calling. I wouldn't trade this career or being an East Eagle for any other!
It's devestating for me to not see my little darlings every day. This E-learning is a new learning experince for all of us but absolutely necessary to keep everyone as safe and healthy as possible. I miss all of you dearly but I would hate to see you sick, so we will make the best of this new experince.
I will post weekly assignments in the Assignments tab as well as on the Class Calendar. If parents are looking for additional resources to understand the standards/content your child is learning, please visit the Curriculum tab or email me with any questions.
One of our class favorites for review are Gimkit games. I have posted links for several games based on particular skills under the Gimkit tab. Students, parents, family members and friends from anywhere can click on these links and play virtually against each other. This is NOT a weekly requirement! It's just a fun extra. Maybe something new for Family Game Night? In addition to Gimkit, Kahoot also has resources to play and create games to play virtually.
Please don't hesitate to contact me for ANY questions at all, anytime. My office hours are 10AM to 2PM Monday-Friday. However, feel free to contact me anytime and I will get back to you ASAP.
Happy E-Learning!!! :-)
