Media Center

Distance Learning for Library Classes

I have created a Google Classroom for every classroom I teach. To access it, go to: classroom.google.com and log in. Here's a video tutorial. Your child's student id# is their username = ex. 12345678@stamfordpublicschools.org and their password is their student id# + initials (NO middle initial). Once logged in, join my class by clicking on the PLUS SIGN in the upper right hand corner and typing in the code that was sent to you. Congratulations! You are in. Please have your student complete the assignments in the Stream. If you are having trouble logging in please email me @ dgerber@stamfordct.gov Good luck and stay safe. We'll see you when we come back :)
