Hello and welcome to our class page. My name is Lisa Cortezan. I am a graduate of Greensboro College with my undergrad studies in Special Education and my graduate degree in Behavior. I have been with Guilford County Schools since 1996 with the Exceptional Children's Department. I have 2 grown sons and 4 grandchildren. My husband and I live in Greensboro with our 3 dogs. I am looking forward to a great year!
You can expect your child to bring home daily homework. This can include reading, math, and writing. Please take time to help your child with his/her homework every night. Our reading program will be Read Well. Each unit has its own reading book as well as a spelling and writing component. We will be using Envision Math this year as well as Number Worlds. We will have show-n-share on Fridays.
I will use a daily communication planner to let you know how the day went, homework assignments and any other correspondence. Please feel free to write me a note in this whenever needed. If you need to contact me during the school day...the easiest way is through email. My school email is firstname.lastname@example.org. Our school phone number is 336-697-3070 but I am not always available to answer the phone during the school day.
Thank you for everything you do in order for your child to have a successful school year. I look forward to working with you and your child this upcoming year.
