Welcome to 5th Grade at the Missoula Online Academy! My name is Ike Wallace and I am beyond excited to be your child’s teacher this school year. My goals for this year are to create an inclusive classroom community, provide efficient, practical access to online learning resources, and to teach a curriculum that is rigorous, engaging, and enjoyable. I’ve taught Elementary and Middle school across Montana for the past five years in large and small school districts, working as a grade level classroom teacher, a specialist teacher, and supporting students in a variety of other roles. While I’ve worked to provide digital access to much of my curriculum and instruction in past positions, this transition to being entirely online is new for me, as I imagine it is for many of my students.
Thank you for being present in your child’s education and I look forward to weeks of learning ahead!
