Mrs. Gina Foss
Hello! This is my seventh year at Vista Ridge and my 14th year teaching science. I currently teach Biology, Honors Biology and AP Environmental Science. I love the postive culture and energy within the staff and students here at Vista Ridge!
The Learning Management System that I will be using to communicate agendas and information will be Google Classroom I have been using Google Classroom all year so students are very familiar with how to access it and our routine. There will be a new posting for each class on the day the particular class is scheduled. In the posting there will be a Google Meeting link, an attendance form and instructions for the days assignment. I will start every class period with a Google Meeting. In this meeting a variety of things can occur: I may directly teach content, review content, answer questions as well as go over the instructions of the days assignment. All students must fill out the attendance form posted in Google Classroom before midnight on the day of their scheduled class if they are to be counted as present. If students are unable to make the meeting, I will post a recording of it later that day. Please email me if you have any questions.
