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, 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): firstname.lastname@example.org
*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 REMOTE LEARNING).
In the coming weeks I plan to set up weekly Zoom meetings with students where we can log in at the same time, catch up, share stories, etc. Stay tuned for a ClassDojo update when that is up and running. In the meantime, check out the link below to learn more about using Zoom if you aren't familiar with it. Then, if possible, 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 when our class meetings get started. I can't wait to see all their faces 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!!!
