Mrs. Chismarick - Instructional Support Teacher


Hello! This is my 3rd year at McKinley, and I am super excited to be working with the Kindergarten-2nd grade ISP caseload. If you have any questions, please feel free to contact me at any time. I look forward to working with your child!  

Remote Learning


During these uncertain times, I feel that communication is very important! I am willing to set up Google Meet conferences with any of my caseload students to help with work completion. Please contact me via email ([email protected]) to set up a time if you are interested. I am also avaliable to answer any questions you may have, and assist you with your child's work load during this time. 

IEP Modifications

All students have been given 2 different options for learning this fall: 1. Full remote learning and 2. Blended- 1/2 day attendance and 1/2 day afternoon remote. For both remote learning options, I worked with the general education teachers to modify the work assignments to address the goals and objectives listed in your child's IEP.  If you have any questions, or need additional resources, please feel free to contact me.  
As a reminder, for both learning options, it is required that students complete the necessary work, and check-in to TeacherEase each day. 

Fun at-home activities!

Here are some fun activities to do with your child while home together!
