Hello, wonderful MVE families and students! My name is Miss Danielle Jensen and I am currently a 3rd grade teacher at Marina Vista Elementary School. I was born and raised in Pittsburg and have taught in the Pittsburg Unified School District for going on 14 years now. I have taught students of every grade K-6th as either a classroom, intervention, summer school, or home home hospital teacher and also as a private tutor. In addition to teaching and tutoring, I have participated in such things as school Family Nights, the Equity Committee, School Site Council, and have been both a Pittsburg Education Association (PEA) school site union representative and an English Language Development (ELD) school site facilitator for about 10 years now. I feel very blessed to be teaching and giving back to the community that has given me so much over the years! In my free time, I enjoy taking walks and hikes in nature, drawing, watching detective and cooking shows, cooking/baking, listening to live music, animals (especially dogs), singing with friends, and playing my baritone ukulele. Thanks for stopping by my page and have a blessed day!
***IMPORTANT! PLEASE READ THE NOTE BELOW!
Due to the school closures going on now because of the Coronavirus outbreak, the best days, times, and ways to contact me are:
Monday thru Friday
Via ClassDojo (preferred): classdojo.com
Via my school email address (alternate): email@example.com
*I WILL DO MY BEST TO RESPOND WITHIN 2 HOURS OR LESS (IF CONTACTED DURING THE ONLINE OFFICE HOURS I PROVIDED ABOVE).
*IF CONTACTED OUTSIDE OF THESE HOURS, I WILL DO MY BEST TO RESPOND WITHIN 24 HOURS MONDAY THRU FRIDAY.
*IF CLASSDOJO ISN'T WORKING FOR YOU FOR SOME REASON, YOU MAY EMAIL ME VIA MY TEACHER EMAIL ADDRESS AND I WILL TRY MY BEST TO CHECK IT EVERY 1-2 WEEKDAYS AND RESPOND WITHIN 24-48 HOURS.
*IF YOU SEND A MESSAGE OR EMAIL ON A DESIGNATED SCHOOL HOLIDAY OR VACATION (i.e. Cesar Chavez Day 3/31, Spring Break 4/10-4/17, etc.), OR ON THE WEEKEND, I WILL TRY MY BEST TO RESPOND WITHIN 24-48 HOURS UPON RETURNING TO WORK (INCLUDING DURING DISTANCE LEARNING).
I have started holding weekly Zoom meetings with students (except during school breaks) where we can log in at the same time, see and hear each other (if the video and audio options are turned on), catch up, share stories, do flashcards, play review learning games, go over weekly assignments, etc. Be sure to check your ClassDojo daily for updates on the day and time these meetings will occur each week. If you are unfamiliar with Zoom, check out the link below to learn more about using it. Then, if possible and if you haven't already, download Zoom on to your device (a tablet, laptop, or desktop computer would be best for our class meetings, but it can work on a smartphone as well) and sign up for a free account so your child will be all set up for our future class meetings on Zoom. I can't wait to see all their faces and hear their voices again soon!
THANKS FOR YOUR PATIENCE AND COOPERATION WITH THIS NEW WORLD OF REMOTE TEACHING AND LEARNING!
WE ARE ALL IN THIS TOGETHER! GO OSPREYS!!!
