As we start to move into our Distance Learning, please reach out if you have any issues. This is a challenging time for all of us, and we are all learning together. If you need help getting into Microsoft, please use this link. https://www.campbell.k12.mn.us/site/default.aspx?PageID=1012 .
Moving forward, we will still be having attendance and participation. Most of my material will be done by recording. This means that you will be able to play the video and stop it as you need. These videos can be downloaded to your computer if you have troubles trying to view them. Just be sure to delete them so you do not lose your memory space on your computer.
You should take notes over the material as their will still be test. What exactly these tests will be not been determined yet. For your notes, I suggest using Cornell Notes. If you do not know what they are, you can watch the videos and read about them here http://lsc.cornell.edu/study-skills/cornell-note-taking-system/ .
Other work will be assigned as well. All of us teachers will strive to have all our material up on Monday so you will have an entire week to finish it. As a student, you will need to find a routine that works for you. Whether it’s working on science one day, math the next, and then history. Or, doing a little bit of each every day. It is what works best for you.
Thank you for taking the time to visit my website. It is currently and will always be work in progress. So please be patient as I will add to it as needed. I am in my sixth year of teaching here at Campbell - Tintah, and I am looking forward to many more.
I enjoy working in our small district because I am able to get to know the students, families, and staff better than at a larger school. If you need to contact me, please email me and I will get back to you as soon as possible.
For anyone who wants to know, here is some information about myself. I went to high school at Central Lyon High School in Rock Rapids, Iowa, where I was born and raised. Central Lyon is not a big school, but compared to Campbell, it sure is. I was involved in football and track for four years. The football team won the state championship my senior year, and I was a state qualifier in track my senior year.
My first two years of college were done at Minnesota West CTC in Worthington, MN. After graduating I transferred to Southwest Minnesota State University (SMSU) in Marshall, MN. I was lucky enough to do my student teaching in Marshall, and I graduated Magna Cum Laude with a BA in Secondary Education - History. After graduating college I worked as a para for one year and a substitute teacher for another before being hired here at Campbell.
