Would you like text or email alerts, reminders, and announcements?
 

Remind is a program that helps me connect with students and parents after hours, in real time, and on their mobile devices or via email. It allows me to send messages and reminders to my students and their parents about homework, announcements, and project components or due dates. You can choose how you connect, either via text or email. If necessary, this program also allows parents and students to safely message the teacher in real time for big immediate educational needs.

Parents, you're the 12th-man in the academic success of our children! We need you as support, cheerleading, motivating, guiding! Parents, I encourage you to sign up for the Parent Group for your child’s course but are also welcome to sign up for the student page if you’d like. The student page will have more frequent messages, including daily work reminders and assignment instructions or links while the parent page messages will focus more on informational announcements (including due dates for bigger projects and assignments).

If you want to receive text messages, text the number 81010 (or 253-348-2203) and in the message write the appropriate class code below including the @ symbol. If you would like to receive emails instead, go to remind.com and enter the appropriate class code including the @ symbol.

Biography

Virginia Rehberg
National Board Certified Teacher, YAY Science (2013), National Board for Professional Teaching Standards
BA in Biology (1996) & Master of Arts Teaching (1997)
University of Puget Sound, Tacoma, WA

I've been teaching at Wilson High School since the Fall of 1997. During that time, I've taught Freshmen Lab Science, Honors
Freshmen Lab Science, Biology, Honors Biology, Integrated Lab Science, Earth Science,  Marine Biology, and now AP Environmental Science. Ram Country is a great place to work!

My claim to fame...I was stung by a Portugese Man'O'War in 2004 while taking surfing lessons in Hawaii. Later during that same trip in another surfing accident, I got hit in the face with the surf board and split off a large piece of a tooth... CONCLUSION: Surfing is not my calling!
Good thing I like teaching!!!
