Starting 3/25 I-Ready Distance Learning
I-Ready is a new program the county has adopted for distance learning. Students will click on the link above. Their login is their first and last initial capitalized with their lunch number. Their password is their lunch number only.
(Ex. login: AC12345 PW:12345) The third grade teachers have already planned out the weekly lessons that will start March 25th and run through April 15th. New weekly assignments in Math and ELA will be released every Wednesday. If school is out longer than these dates, we will continue to add more instruction. We will be able to track student progress.
Meet the teacher!
Hello! My name is Amy Connell and I'm going to be your child's third-grade teacher. My experience includes four years teaching 1st grade, three years teaching 2nd grade, 4 years teaching 3rd grade, and one year teaching 4th grade Math. This will be my twelfth year teaching and my fifth year at LCES.
I graduated from the University of Mississippi with my Bachelor’s degree in Elementary Education in 2008.
I am married to my wonderful husband Mikel. We have been married almost 5 years. We have two beautiful children. My daughter Hadley will be turning 4 this year and my son Bradley will be turning 2. We also have three dogs named Levi, Wrangler, and Chloee.
In my free time, I love to ride horses and run.
