    I miss you all very much!  As some of you may know and most of you do not, I had surgery on my knee a few weeks ago and I am on medical leave even though we are all learning from home. I will be updating my page and will be assigning work to support your class and to increase our listening, reading and writing and speaking! 

    On your Clever page, please go to BrainPopESL and take the test to find your level. After you find your level, I will give you instructions.

    In the meantime, if you are not on Class Dojo with me, please do that now! I sent everyone an invitation. 

    Estimadas familias de ENL y estudiantes de la Sra. Cantor.


    Los extraño mucho a todos! Como algunos de ustedes saben y la mayoría de ustedes no, tuve una cirugía en mi rodilla hace unas semanas y estoy de baja médica a pesar de que todos estamos aprendiendo desde casa. ¡Actualizaré mi página y asignaré trabajo para apoyar a su clase y aumentar nuestra escucha, lectura, escritura y expresión oral!

    I will be available from 10:00 am to 1:30 everyday this week. 

    Please feel free to contact me and I will be reaching out to you as well.

    Estaré disponible de 10:00a 1:30 cada día esta semana. No dude en ponerse en contacto conmigo y también me pondré en contacto con usted.
