My Classroom Plan For Communication
When there is either a lack of or no communication at all very little or nothing gets accomplished. I believe that all classrooms need to have a plan of communication in place.

My web page will also include a class chat discussion forum where current events and class topics can be discussed by myself and my students as well as parents.
