    Dear parents,

              It is with great pleasure I welcome you to my 3rd-grade math and science class for 2020-2021. This academic year will be a journey of growth, inquiry, exploration, and new experiences for your child.  I would like to take this opportunity to introduce myself.  My name is Mrs. Daniels and I am excited to be your child’s Math/Science 3rd-Grade Teacher.  This is now my 11th year in this school district.  During my first four years, I taught Spanish at Heywood.  Then, I transferred to Forest Street School, where I taught 2nd and 3rd grades.  In 2017, I returned home to Heywood.  I am thrilled to be back.  I have been teaching 3rd-grade math and science ever since.  I earned my bachelor’s degree from Rutgers University  in 2008 and recently received my master’s degree in Elementary Reading and Mathematics from Walden University in 2019. 

               As the facilitator of your child’s learning journey, I am enthused and honored to be given this responsibility. My role involves fostering a safe, engaging, and challenging environment,  that hopefully will inspire your child’s continual development of mathematics and scientific literacy and more importantly development of skills for inquiry and problem-solving.

              Throughout the year, it is very important to have a strong parent-teacher relationship.  If at any time you have any questions or concerns you can contact me via Class Dojo or email danieljo@orange.k12.nj.us. Your child’s learning experience can be even more successful with your involvement and support. I encourage you to join your child on this exciting journey through some of the following actions:

    • Conversations with your child around their learning experiences – perhaps a weekly math/science talk

    • Review the weekly schedule

    • Follow up with assignments and organization

    • Become familiar with the learning platforms such as Google Classroom, Iready, and Readorium

    • Stay in touch via Class Dojo/emails/phone calls or scheduled appointments

      Due to virtual learning, all parents must connect to Class Dojo where I will post announcements.  Please check Class Dojo often for important updates, reminders, news, and other information that may be helpful.


    Here is your Class Dojo Link Invitation: https://www.classdojo.com/invite/?c=C6V3FLS


    Below you will also find your child’s DAILY SCHEDULE.  This schedule displays what time your child needs to be logged in to Zoom for daily instruction in ALL content areas.  Please make sure to follow the daily schedule and be prepared for instruction.



    We will use Google Classroom this year! 

    On this platform, teachers will post your child’s daily assignments.
