About Me

Any and every article of classroom and assignment information will be posted on Google Classroom, as well as my teacher page. It is very important that you remind your child that if they miss class that day to check Google Classroom to keep up with materials. 

Google Classroom will be a valuable tool in our classroom evironment. Here, you can find materials from the day, as well as the objectives of what we did in class. This way, in case students missed a day in class, they can keep up with what we did. 

In addition, we are entering a strange new world with COVID 19. I implore you to encourage your child to wear their mask and be open to new experiences in school. Please also make sure they bring their Chromebook to school each day charged and ready to be used.

My hometown is Buffalo, New York. The most important personal piece of information is that I'm a big sports person. Any knowledge of the Buffalo Bills, Buffalo Sabres, Wichita State Shockers, or Nebraska Cornhuskers your student brings to class will earn them major brownie points with Mr. Ginal. 

I look forward to getting to know your child throughout the course of the year!
