Week 1 in the Books!

Friday, September 11, 2020 by Tricia Hexter | Uncategorized

I just want to thank you all for the roller coaster ride this week! There were lots of scheduling issues and it made for a very stressful week for many, including me. As stressful as that all was, the minute I was in teacher mode with your kids, my world was suddenly right again! I enjoyed EVERY second of all of the different age kids I had the privilege to teach this week! 

Thank you for working with me to ensure your kids have a safe place to come and learn that supports their online experience. I posted many pictures on Facebook and Instagram, so hopefully you follow the GPI4L page so you get to see your child in action! If you selected that you do not give permission to post pictures, I will not post a picture of their face, but I may cover it up with a sticker. 

Please note that Mrs. Brengman and Ms. Husk will not be here next Tuesday and I will be the sub! 7th graders WATCH OUT! LOL! Then, moving forward we have added ANOTHER teacher to the mix! Ms. Claeys is an amazing math teacher from Pierce. She will be taking on the Tuesday and Wednesday groups and Ms. Husk will be the Thursday teacher for Math. Ms. Husk needed to lighten her load as she took on a new role as a guidance counselor and is feeling a bit stretched and did not want to compromise quality! Mrs. Brengman has been retired for a few years and is slowly working back into the game. She is enjoying her time, but is still finding her sea legs!

The staff is growing, but my goal is to provide top notch service. Feedback is not only welcome, it's appreciated. I care what your kids say. If something isn't great, I NEED to know. If something IS great, I WANT to know! 

Enjoy your weekend with this beautiful Fall-like weather!


WEEK of 9/8-9/11

Just to make sure everyone knows, the schedule will go as planned this week! NO CHANGES HAVE BEEN MADE YET. Any changes made will take effect next week once I finalize the schedule. Thank you!

Fall 2020

Friday, August 14, 2020 by Tricia Hexter | Uncategorized

Phew! That was a long day of working on the schedule! I wanted to clarify a few things. One, this is not TUTORING. This is an hour and a half of instructional time in a small group. We will cover topics that are in the GPPS curriculum and support their learning for the current year. We will also address the emotional and social needs as we see fit. We will discuss organizational skills to support their new virtual learning and how to handle all of that. This hour and a half will be like a mini school while they are here. We will have fun, learn, work together, and meet needs based on our assessment.

***If you are not happy with your child's placement, please contact me immediately so we can address scheduling needs. 

I have NOT made this calendar public yet. The only people who can see this calendar are the people who have filled out the Fall 2020 Commitment Interest Form. If you like what you see, you can secure your spot by paying for your level of commitment in full. I did put everyone on the calendar until December just in case you decided to change your mind if you chose the 1 month or 2 month option. This is the LAST CALL for those spots before it goes public. Since we are just about full and I have not made it public, I am certain those spots will be taken, so just make sure, one last time, that you are happy with your choice.

I am so happy to have the opportunity to work with small groups of kids in person! We will continue to take extreme caution so we can remain open. Please make sure you children stay home if they are feeling under the weather. 

Please let me know if you have any questions or concerns!

Thank you and I am looking forward to a great start to the year at GPI4L!
