• Welcome to Room 403 Counseling Enriched Program!

    Please see uploaded classroom expectations and procedures and contact me with any questions (contact information on this site).

    My name is Lauren Burkhardt and I have been teaching Middle School Special Education for five years. Before that, I was an instrunctional aid at the elementary level and also taught pre-school. I have a Master's in Special Education and live in Placerville with my husband and 2 year old son. I love being in the classroom and exploring new methods for academic and social-emotional learning. I'm looking forward to working with all of you and your students! 

  • Hi everyone! Myself and Ms. Mary and Mr. H have created a document with days and times for zoom meetings with one of us to support students in any way we can. I have emailed and uploaded this in Schoology and Classroom. Please be sure to check for it!

  • Hi everyone,
     
    I hope you had a great Easter and restful break. Just a few quick reminders as we wrap up the remainder of the year:
     
    1. Please remember to have your student sign into Schoology EACH day to log attendance. This must be done through their account, not your parent portal, in which they use their google login. 
    2. My Office Hours are as follows: 

      M- 9:00-11:00 available via email/chat to answer any parent question or student work questions.  2:00-2:30 check in

      T- 9:00-10:30 via email/chat AND 1-2 via zoom video chat for parent or individual students conferences OR group work/chat.

      W- 9:00-11:00 available via email/chat to answer any parent question or student work questions. 10:00-10:30 Nitrotype Races with the students. 2:00pm-2:30 check in 

      TH-  9:00-10:30 via email/chat AND 1-2 via zoom video chat for parent or individual students conferences OR group work/chat.

      F- 9-12 to check-in on attendance/work completion for the week and answer any emails. 

    3. ​I will upload all assignments into google classroom AND schoology on Monday and Tuesday of each week, assignments are due on Friday.

    4. If you would like a personalized schedule for your student to pace what assignments your child should complete each day, please let me know. I have a template that I am using for one student and can definitely support/accommodate others! 

    5. I know there will be some sort of grading system put into place, but I am still waiting on confirmation of what that will look like so please make sure your students are at least attempting all work. I am here to support but at the very least, they need to login to Schoology and attempt assignments (this is why that daily pacing schedule may help). I know we are all doing the best we can with this adjustment and I am here to help!

  • Hi all,

    With the recent shut down and shift to online learning, please see helpful websites on this page for google classroom and zoom video conferencing information. I have already put all the students in google classroom and have started to upload lessons and assignments. We will be having an online zoom vdeo chat this Thursday, 3/26, at 1pm. Hope to see all the students there! Miss them!

  • Important info on what's to come---
    On Monday, we will be starting a program called Schoology. This program takes daily attendance for each class and is also a way of allowing students to do their assignments. You will need to check in for attendance in classes here. Here is the link https://fcusd.schoology.com/home. More info on this to come! Because you are already used to google classroom and I think it is a bit more user friendly, I will upload assignments in both systems and give the links to google classroom in Schoology. (Google classroom link and code: https://classroom.google.com/c/NDMwNDIyNTE2NzRa o72xbdf). So, if you prefer to use classroom for assignments that is fine but they will still need to do attendance in schoology. I apologize, I know this is a lot even for me so I am trying to make it as easy as possible!

    We will be having a zoom video conference today with myself, Ms. Record, and the IA's. This will give us a chance to all check in with each other and talk about how we are doing. Below is a video on how to use zoom. It is super easy and user friendly. I will send out the link before the meeting at 1pm so look for it around 12:30.

  • Hi all-

    We will start working in Schoology for attendance and assignments this week, pause for Spring Break, and continue the following week of 4/14. I have uploaded the Schoology website through helpful websites on my class page. I will be utilizing this avenue as well as google classroom, but the students will need to log attendance in Schoology. This is a work in progress, but I will have office hours available to assist with this as well as any questions or schoolwork support for the students. My schedule/office hours are as follows:

    M- 9:00-11:00 available via email/chat to answer any parent question or student work questions.  2:00-2:30 check in

    T- 9:00-10:30 via email/chat AND 1-2 via zoom video chat for parent or individual students conferences OR group work/chat.

    W- 9:00-11:00 available via email/chat to answer any parent question or student work questions. 10:00-10:30 Nitrotype Races with the students. 2:00pm-2:30 check in 

    TH-  9:00-10:30 via email/chat AND 1-2 via zoom video chat for parent or individual students conferences OR group work/chat.

    F- 9-12 to check-in on attendance/work completion for the week and answer any emails. 

    I will also be checking in on assignments and emails here and there throughout the day and will try to reply promptly.

    My contact information is on the site and I know all of you already have my email. I look forward to this adventure with you!
