Mr. John Kalinowski
Hello, I am John Kalinowski and I teach 6th grade Science and Social Studies. I graduated from the University of Houston-Downtown in 2005. This is my 5th year here at WES. Currently, I am helping our online students learn about science and social studies. We currently use various educational programs such as nearpod, peardeck, InsertLearning among others. If you have any questions or concerns, please don't hesitate to e-mail me at firstname.lastname@example.org and I will reply to you within 1 business day.
We've currently switched to Schoology which replaced Google Classroom. It's been a learning curve for all of us, but we're getting more experience every day with it. We use Chromebooks almost daily in some sort in class. Please remember:
1. Please make sure your child's Chromebook is charging every night.
2. Please make sure if they didn't charge it to bring their charger and keep track of it.
3. If they cannot find their charger or it breaks, please let their homeroom teacher know as soon as possible.
