Mrs. Bridgewater


Welcome Back!

Let me start by saying, I miss seeing your smiling faces each day! I hope that you and your loved ones are staying safe and healthy during this current health crisis. I just wanted to reach out to you about At Home Learning and At Home Access for Read180. Even though we aren't seeing each other face to face, students will still have access to Small Group Instruction and Independent Software for Read180. The expectation for student learning this year will be on an A/B schedule. Student's will be assigned a Group A or Group B, and rotate accordingly throughout the school week's lessons. Small Group Instruction via Zoom will take place 2 x's a week, and Indpendent Software will take place 3 x's a week. All students will be on Software on Fridays, unless there is a full day of school, due to a Monday off. The designated 3 rotations of software, for 20 minutes per rotation will allow for the recommended 60 minutes per week. If students do not have the ability to work on the designated days for Software, they will have access outside of the scheduled days/times; in any combination of days. The preferred rotations will help students continue to practice their reading skills and support their reading comprehension, with a more consistent practice. Please, refer to the Home Connection tab on my website for more information regarding the expected use and purpose for continued learning with the support of READ180.**

Please feel free to reach out to me at the following email, should you need any assistance.

All About Me:

I am starting my 15th year at Mirage Elementary, but actually did my student teaching at Mirage, when the campus was still in portable buildings! My husband and I have three sons which all graduated from the Deer Valley School District and The University of Arizona! I am dedicated to helping students find the best in themselves and be successful! I am looking forward to another wonderful year of student engagement & learning,whether virtual or face to face, in 2020!
