Dear Parents

I am thrilled to be your student’s English teacher. St. Johnsbury Academy Jeju is an exciting, innovate school that is designed to help each student reach his/her post secondary goals.

Class Website

As a school, the confidentiality of each student’s personal data is paramount. As such, I use Google Classroom as the digital center of our 1 to 1 classroom. Google Classroom is a part of SJA Jeju’s Google Apps for Education initiative and prevents any user without a @sjajeju.kr email address from accessing the class website. Although this is good for security, it does not allow parents to digitally observe what is going on in class. However, Google Classroom does allows parents to receive a weekly or daily email with the following information:

  • Missing work—Work that’s late at the time the email was sent
  • Upcoming work—Work that’s due today and tomorrow (for daily emails) or work that’s due in the upcoming week (for weekly emails)
  • Class activity—Announcements, assignments, and questions recently posted by teachers

If you are interested in receiving this information via email, please use the Parent Email Address Submission form. You should start receiving emails from Google Classroom within 24 hours.

Communication

One of my main roles at SJA Jeju is to help each student to be successful. If you have any questions about your student, or about your student’s class, please contact me first. Although learning is each student’s responsibility, parents and teachers can best facilitate each student’s success when we work together to encourage and motivate students.
