    My name is Janet Hess, and I am excited to be your child’s Reading, English, and Social Studies teacher.

    About Me: I hold a Bachelor's Degree in Education from the University of Pittsburgh.  With 27 years of experience, I am dedicated to creating an environment that facilitates growth, exploration, independence, and respect. 

    Our Classroom: In Reading, English, and Social Studies, the goal is to make learning a collaborative and enjoyable experience, fostering curiosity and a love for knowledge.  Students are encouraged to give their best effort, arrive prepared, and advocate for themselves when needed. 

    Connect with Me: I encourage open communication and value collaboration between parents, students, and me. Please feel free to contact me via email or phone for any questions or concerns. Let's work together to ensure a successful and enriching academic journey.

    Online Resources: Stay updated on class announcements, assignments, and important dates by visiting my webpage or via Google Guardian. I will regularly update the page with resources to support your child's learning and provide a seamless online experience.  Daily assignments are posted, along with a brief description of the day’s lesson.  

    I am excited about the opportunities this platform brings and am committed to making our classroom a space where each student can thrive.

    Here's to a fantastic year of exploration, growth, and achievement!

    Yours in Education,

    Ms. Hess

    Please note that I do my best to return emails and phone calls promptly and as my schedule permits.  Also, there are unforeseen circumstances that arise during a school day that alter the daily schedule and assignments. Please check with your child and have him/her access Google Classroom for updates.
