    Career and Technical Education ... Business

     



    This is my 23rd year of teaching.  I taught at Grimsley High School in Greensboro for 11 years.  I have been at Western Alamance for 12 years.  Before teaching, I was a Corporate Accountant so business has always been my life. :-)

     

    I have a wonderful husband and 3 great kids ... 1 GRADUATED from Appalachian State (NOW a 2nd Grade Teacher at Pleasant Grove) ... 1 at Elon University (NOW as a Senior) ... 1 Seventh Grader at Western Middle School.  

     

    I would update my picture except that I like looking at this one when everyone was together, young and cute! 

     

    ONLINE TEACHING ... WHAT DOES IT LOOK LIKE FOR Mrs. Ward???

     

    1st ... Students are sent a DAILY email to their school account from Mrs. Ward.

     

    2nd ... Students are to use the Class Calendar to see assignments and details.

     

    3rd ... Class Calendar will direct students to submit work either through Google Classroom OR Quizizz.

     

    ANY QUESTIONS ... Email Mrs. Ward (marsha_ward@abss.k12.nc.us)!

     

    =============================================================================================

    North Carolina Department of Public Instruction made a decision to NOT count ANY of the digital learning grades in the Q3 grades (Notified 4/8) ... So changes were made to YOUR Q3 to reflect the work done BEFORE School Closing.
     
    ABSS Central Office made a decision to not give zeros for missing assignments during digital learning.  You are to receive a grade of 55 for Q4 if you didn't turn in the work OR as your lowest grade per assignment.  This could lower your grades of EASY A 's for doing the work.  MY RECOMMENDATION is to get ALL the work done!
     
    REMEMBER as I told you at the beginning of the semester ... I am preparing you for a FUTURE CAREER/JOB which you will have to do work DAILY!!  
     
    AS you can see in what is going on with jobs during this COVID-19, YOU NEED a CAREER PLAN .. An Emergency Fund ... A Long-term Savings!!!!
     
    YOUR CURRENT SELF AFFECTS YOUR FUTURE SELF!!!
