Our homeroom meets every morning. Tuesday through Friday we meet for 18 minutes, and on Mondays we meet for 25 minutes. During homeroom, we take attendance, look at our grades, have an opportunity to get help with homework, work on social skills, and try to build a relationship with a small group of students, so the students know they have a teacher in the building they can trust and come to with any problems or questions they may have. The homeroom teacher also serves as the communicator between school and home. I will be making calls, sending e-mails, and sending home notes to parents to keep them updated about grades, events, and issues going on at school throughout the year. I will also be scheduling and helping students coordinate conferences for parents.
