Welcome Bristow Bears to the 2020/2021 School Year!!!

My name is Ms. Orellana and I love teaching Spanish and ELD.  This my 18th year teaching both of those subjects, five of which have been here at Bristow.  Besides teaching, I love to travel, spend time with my kids, watch shows/movies and listen to music.

 

To view classwork for the week, please go to classlink and click on the My Back icon and then click Weekly assignments app.

  • You may e-mail me by using the link on the left.  Please be aware that if you are a student using your school account I CANNOT return a message to you this way.

  • You may message me through Canvas (either parent or student).  Parents additionally feel free to use your regular email.

  • Updated weekly ~ students will receive feedback on individual assignments, and parents will be e-mailed a status report that indicates the completion rate of assignments.   
  • Parent Portal ~ grades may always be checked by clicking on this link (or clicking the Parent Connect icon on the left side of the BMS main page) and logging in. 
  • Students may check their grades by clicking the Student Connect app in Classlink. Please note that Student Connect will show the most up to date grade, not canvas.

 

  • There will be a variety of tasks, such as making a video or collaborating with other students, but much of our classwork will be assigned through canvas and the Pearson website(for Year Long and Semester Spanish only).  Students will be expected to log in to the Pearson site to view the classwork problems and complete their assignments on-line.  In addition we will use flipgrid and classkick to enhance our learning.  
  • All assignments can be accessed by using Classlink (click on the icon on the BMS website), opening the MyBackpack app, selecting the proper class, then opening up Canvas.  Be sure to read any announcements (if any) for the course when opening MyBackpack.

Learning will take place in the following manner (click graphic to enlarge):
