Ms. Fortez's Class!

Aloha students and families, My name is Miss Fortez and I will be your second grade teacher this year. Although this year will be a little different, I am very excited to meet all of you. I am new to the Waiʻanae Elementary ʻohana, however I have spent many years working with students on this coast. I have a deep passion for teaching and learning. Just like you, I have also spent many years being a student but at the University of Hawaiʻi at Mānoa. This year we will be navigating and learning new things through distance learning. The platform that we will be using for your daily assignments is Google Classroom. As for our whole group/small group live lessons, we will be using Google Meets. If you have any questions, you can contact me at (626)386-3920 or maria_fortez@waianaeelem.k12.hi.us. I know we are facing some challenges at the moment, but I appreciate you all for being patient and understanding. Please continue to stay safe and healthy! I look forward to getting to know each and everyone of you.
