Dear Parents and Students,
Welcome to Mrs. Dusseau's website! You will find a wealth of information about our school and classroom. This website can be a useful tool in enriching your child's 5th grade year as well as teaching technology skills that will be useful for their whole life.I check my email daily, please feel free to email me at any time. Another easy way to write me a note is through the assignment book, if needed I will respond that day. I do expect the parents to sign or initial the assignment daily. The kids will lose pay for every day that they do not have a signature.
My goal as a teacher is to create an environment in the classroom in which children WANT to learn, WANT to behave appropriately, and WANT to achieve. An important part of this is our mini-economy. I have found that mini-economy helps to promote behavior and academics because their pay can also be affected. For example, poor behavior decreases their pay. Good test scores adds extra pay. If someone is absent, they are not paid for that day.Please contact me with any questions, comments, or concerns. I would also appreciate any feedback regarding how I can make this site better for your needs.Thanks for stopping by!
