Welcome to Mr. Groves's Teacher Page

Distance Learning

I have had many different teaching experiences including teaching severely handicapped students, learning handicapped, general education and a very interesting placement teaching English in Denmark. I enjoy working with kids because they are so eager to learn and they say and do the funniest things which really make my job more enjoyable.

Inspired by
Education is the most important gift anyone can provide another.

College
I attended California State University, Northridge and California State University, Bakersfield and for graduate work I studies at San Francisco State University.

District Tools I Use 

I love using NEWSELA, Brainpop and other educational apps and websites.

Attendance  
I take attendance using Aeries. You can stay on top of attendance through the Aeries Family Portal or Aeries App

Report Cards 
I use Aeries to generate report cards. Families can view report cards through the Aeries Family Portal.

Gradebook
I have not started using the AERIES Standards based Gradebook but will be updating my Teacher Portal once I learn the process.

.Google Classroom:
I am using Google Classroom to manage assignments.  If you would like daily or weekly digests of activities and missing assignments, I can invite you as a guardian.  Please email me with your request and email address.

Other Tools I Use:
With the new website portal I will be updating this as I learn the new process.

I hope you are well and you are able to use my online resources.
Here is a link to my Google Classroom Page which includes a proposed schedule for your student.
Students can read books of their choice or use their accounts in RazKids and Newslea. Please have students write Reading Responses to their readings.
Students may also use BrainPop and SeeSaw accounts for Science and Social Studies.
The best way to contact me is through email: kgroves@slzusd.org
Stay strong, we are all in this together.
