Hi! Welcome to 7th grade! My name is Ms. Kathryn O'Brien. I am the Study Skills teacher for the BLUE TEAM. I am so excited for the 2017-2018 school year!
Here is a little about me: I my favorite animal is an alpaca. Some of my favorite things to do are kayaking, reading, sitting on the beach, hiking, and traveling. I have a little dog named Samson and I am afraid of spiders!
The goal of study skills is to provide students with support in their main stream classes. The Study Skills program provides strategies for students who benefit from small group instruction through the mainstream curriculum. Goals and instructional objectives are structured to meet the individual needs of the students. Students learn which cognitive strategies work best in specific situations and which strategies personally work best for them. Study Skills topics include developing an effective study routine, self-advocacy skills, note taking, test taking skills and textbook usage form the basis of the structured curriculum.
Extra Help Schedule
It is best to make an appointment with me for extra help. I am available most morning in room 121 starting at 7:55 (unless I have a meeting) and Tuesdays and Thursday after school until 3:30 in room 121.
Feel free to contact me at: firstname.lastname@example.org
It is the student's responsibility to check the homework assignments from each teacher. Please make it a habit of relying on yourself, and your studentship skills to obtain it daily. I post the homework, quiz and test schedules as a way for you to get it if you check if forget, get it if you are absent and to help you prepare. It also helps parents with staying up to date!
