Tracy Junco
4th grade
My name is Tracy Junco.  I am a graduate of the University of Alabama, and have obtained my Masters from Troy in Montgomery.  This will be my 21st year of teaching.  Being a long time "Alabama-Girl" and state resident allows me to have a vested interest, not only in our community, but in the education of our children as well.  I love teaching AL history and science since I am able to pull from my own heritage and backyard.  Math is another love I share with my students.  I know what a challenge math can be and how vital these elementary skills are, so helping students learn a variety of methods for meeting the challenge is quite enjoyable.  I LOVE teaching and being a part of the Daniel Pratt family.  To continue with my growth as a fourth grade teacher I have enjoyed the privilege of being trained with AMSTI, STEM, and Project Learning Tree.  Hands-on learning, discovery, problem solving, a variety of projects and interesting assignments, help make each school year fun and memorable with the help of Alabama Pals and 4-H. I feel that it is vital to stay abreast of the latest technology and teaching methods in order to provide our students with the best education possible.

Log into Schoology by 8:00 am.

Your teacher will schedule group meetings and one-on-one work times.

Mrs. Junco and Mrs. Jones will have a planning period from 8:40-9:20 each day.  This would be a great time for you to schedule your PE.

Try to schedule your snack time around 2:30.

Your teachers will be available until 4:00 pm.

Discipline Plan

Mrs. Jones and I both use Class Dojo to monitor our classroom discipline.  Negative points result in consequences and positive points earn rewards.  This is a great way to monitor behavior since parents can link with us and keep track of their child’s points as they earn or lose them.  Students, who fail to follow school rules, as stated in the handbook, can receive demerits or receive an office referral.  Office referrals go to the principal and assistant principal for review and they will make a final decision on the consequences of the behavior.  Parents will then be notified.  

From the Mrs. Junco...

I believe that parent teacher contact is vital.  If you need to reach me during school hours, you can call the school at 334-361-6400 or email me at tracy.junco@acboe.net Please keep in mind that messages left in the front office are placed in our teacher boxes to be checked during our planning time or the end of the day.  It may be the following day before these calls are returned.  Messages left on my email will be checked daily and an email sent back at my earliest convenience.  Conferences will be scheduled promptly, and these will be during my planning period. 

 

INOW is available and can be purchased in the front office if you wish to keep up with your child's grades.  This is a great website that allows you to see grades as I post them. I strongly recommend parents use INow to keep up with grades because doing so will prevent any miscommunication with regard to scores on the final report card.

In order to make this year successful, please provide students with a quiet place to work.  Make sure they have access to a device with a good internet connection.  Breakfast is the best way to start each day.  Don't forget to schedule in a snack, PE time, and a few "movement breaks."  Make sure the student has a learning coach with them while working on their lessons.  I look forward to getting to know each of my students and having the best year ever!
