Welcome to Mr. Groves's Teacher Page
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.
Education is the most important gift anyone can provide another.
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.
I take attendance using Aeries. You can stay on top of attendance through the Aeries Family Portal or Aeries App
I use Aeries to generate report cards. Families can view report cards through the Aeries Family Portal.
I have not started using the AERIES Standards based Gradebook but will be updating my Teacher Portal once I learn the process.
Sangha Interactive App:
I have not yet started using the Sangha App, I will update my teacher page when I being using it.
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.
