Mrs. Kristin Worley
Welcome to WHS Biology!
My name is Kristin Worley and I will be leading you or your young person through our NGSS Biology adventure for the next 18 weeks. I have been a Timberwolf here at The Creek since 2003 and am excited to be celebrating my 24th year teaching science. When I am not in the classroom I most likely will be outside with my family, chasing the dog or, if I am really lucky, reading a good book in a hammock.
Students, Parents, Guardians & All Student Supporters we will use Google Classroom as our one-stop shop for all biology material this semester. This is easily accessible by students but unfortunately not for student supporters. That simply means you will need to have your student's password or better still, have your student log in and investigate together. Students will be on this site daily.
Each day there is an electronic agenda (found in Google Classroom, Classwork tab) indicates what our learning target is, what tasks we will do to investigate that content and what the classwork / homework will be (peek here). A video is attached to each daily slide to support absent students or those who just need a little more support remembering what needs to get done.
Late work from excused absences is always accepted; two days absent begets two days to turn in missed work. Work that comes in simply late will receive point deductions but can easily be buried by future on time work. If a pattern of late work develops we will need to put our heads together to create a solution.
Not all classwork can be turned in electronically, so some items will be submitted in Google Classroom, but many items will be turned in by hand or completed in our biology notebook. Ask your student(s) to show you their biology notebook. It is our cherished possession for the entire class. Keep your eyes on Aeries / Parent Square as grades are updated daily and please do not hesitate to email me if you have questions or need assistance!
Deep breaths, we got this!
