Dr. Rachel Pagano
Hi, I'm Dr. Pagano, the 7th/8th grade ELA teacher at the Cesar E. Chavez School. I look forward to helping your child grow to his/her fullest potential as reader, as a writer -- and hopefully as a human being!
Parents and Students: Amid this very trying time of the COVID-19 pandemic, I want to reassure you that ELA instruction *WILL* continue! Assignments will be updated on a nightly basis -- just click the tab for your (or your child's) class section.
Aside from our regular module work ("Lyddie" for 7th graders; "To Kill a Mockingbird" for 8th graders), we will be using "Clever." My assignments can be found on "R. Pagano's Page." I have also placed Skills Navigator on Clever. All 7th/8th grade students are expected to complete 3 "literacy" missions per every 2-week period (see class section tab for all due dates).
During the school closure, I will be available every day between the hours of 12:00 and 3:30 p.m. Please don't hesitate to reach out at firstname.lastname@example.org if you have any questions or concerns.
