Jennifer Nance

Welcome to Independent Living!!  This page is for you to know what we have covered for the year and what needs to be done as we move forward for the rest of the school year.  It contains information on how to reach me, as well as information on accessing google classroom for Independent Living. I encourage each of you (parents and students) to check your email frequently for weekly/daily communication from me.  I also encourage everyone to visit the website frequently to stay current on what is happening in our county, and read any updates from Dr. Waltz.  In advance, I thank you for your patience and flexibility during this uncertain time. Stay safe!

Office Hours:
I am available M-F by email during the day hours of 8:00am-4:00pm should you have any questions or concerns.  My virtual office hours every week are Tuesday and Friday from 12:00-1:00 pm should students need one-on-one assistance. 

"NEW" Google Classroom:

Each student will now need to access Mrs. Nance's Google Classroom pages.  To do so, each student will need to use the link below.  There is also a link with instructions for accessing my google classroom pages for the first time. These instructions are extremely helpful and can aid you with password issues. Lastly, I have also included the class codes for each period which you will need to access your specific class page. After following the instructions, if you have issues please contact me by email. Thanks!!
