It has been our intention to return to some form of in-person learning as soon as it was determined by our health departments that it is both safer and feasible to do so. On September 21, during our virtual town hall with county health department officials, we reviewed the current coronavirus data for our community. To this end, our county health agency partners have made the recommendation that it is now appropriate for us to return to a hybrid learning model. Click here to watch the virtual town hall discussion about the data guiding our decisions and current levels in our community. Beginning Monday, October 5, we will be implementing a hybrid in-person learning schedule for all students who are not currently enrolled in the LaunchED program. LaunchED student’s schedules will not be impacted by this change.
Cómo usted sabe, nuestra intención ha sido volver a alguna forma de aprendizaje en persona tan pronto cómo nuestros departamentos de salud determinen que es más seguro y factible hacerlo. Anoche, durante nuestra junta virtual con los funcionarios del departamento de salud del condado, revisamos los datos actuales del coronavirus para nuestra comunidad. Con esto, nuestros asociados de las agencias de salud pública del condado han recomendado que ahora es apropiado que regresemos a un modelo de aprendizaje híbrido. Haga clic aquí para ver la discusión de la junta virtual sobre los datos que guían nuestras decisiones y los niveles actuales en nuestra comunidad. Comenzando el lunes 5 de octubre, estaremos implementando un programa de aprendizaje híbrido en persona para todos los estudiantes que no estén inscritos actualmente en el programa LaunchED. Los horarios de estudiantes LaunchED no serán impactados por este cambio.
The 2018-2019 school year will be Janice’s 7th year teaching at Alpine. Before coming to Alpine, Janice taught third and fourth grade at T.R. Paul Academy of Arts and Knowledge, Fort Collins. She earned her teaching degree from the Buena Vista University, Iowa, and her Masters in Counseling Psychology from The Adler School of Psychology, Chicago IL. Janice worked as a private practice counselor in Chicago for 12 years, and also with Community Art Partners, an organization created to reach out to at-risk youth. She taught classroom management classes at the University of Northern Colorado, and is an educator for the Girl’s Leadership Institute.
The culture of Janice’s classroom could best be described as one of empowerment. The students are trained to handle classroom procedures and conflicts, creating for themselves valuable organizational and leadership life-skills. She uses positive classroom management strategies to ensure that each student is supported to learn, grow, and succeed.
Janice enjoys swimming, hiking, kayaking, and creative projects of all kinds, but spending time with her children and their families surpasses all.
