Ms. Soldo - Sixth Grade

Welcome to My Page!
 
About me: 
      I am a mom of 3 little girls, two of whom attend Union Academy.  My hobbies include arts and crafts, especially painting and drawing and building things out of recycled wood pallets.  I also enjoy playing and watching many sports.  My favorite sports to participate in are soccer and snowboarding. I even still play soccer in an adult recreational league on the weekends with my husband.  My daughters love to play soccer just like their parents.        
       I attended Pennsylvania State University where I majored in Secondary Education.  I moved to North Carolina less than a year after graduating and have been here since 2010.  I have been teaching middle school since 2012.  The 2017-2018 school year was my first year at Union Academy.  I really enjoy teaching here so far and I look forward to many more years as a Cardinal!

Grade Breakdown (Subject to change, will keep you posted):
      
      Informal Assessments:   40%
      Formal Assessments:     60%
      
Homework Guidelines:
   

      Occasionally, we might not finish something in class and it will need to be finished at home.  Most homework will be to study for the quizzes and test.    

 

 

Late-work Policy:
     All work is expected to be turned in on time.  Any late work is subject to an immediate zero, but can be made up within a reasonable amount of time. No late work will be accepted within 2 weeks of the end of a marking period, due to time constraints for grading.  Work that is late due to absences will follow the school policies.
