Hello & Welcome to my Online Classroom!
My name is Michelle Orth and 2020-2021 will be my 2nd year in Lyndhurst & my 11th year teaching overall. For the first 9 years I taught high school & middle school math, last year I began teaching in the Business/Technology Department at Lyndhurst where I teach AP Computer Science, Computer Science and Introduction to Video.
I am a wife & mother of four children: Meagan (23), Patrick(20), and my twins Liam & Emily (19). Additionally, I have a large extended family including 13 brothers/sisters/in-laws and 16 nieces and nephews. My family, both immediate & extended, keep me VERY busy. In my limited spare time I enjoy travel, cooking, watching movies and most of all going to the beach where I occasionally get the opportunity to read.
The 2020-2021 school year promises to be a challenging one for all of us. I will do my best to be patient and flexible and I ask that each of you does the same. None of us have experienced this before, and while we may all be in the same storm each of us has our own vessel- what is easy for you may be difficult for another, so lets all just do our best to weather the storm and learn dance in the rain!
During the school year, whether we are fully remote, hybrid or in person the easiest and best way to contact me is via email. I try my best to respond to all emails by the end of the school day (if you send it after 3 response should be no later than 3 the next school day). Once in school my classroom is Room 139 (right next to the supervisors office) and my door is always open for questions, comments or concerns or just to stop in and say hello.
I look forward to meeting everyone virtually the week of September 14th (please check individual class pages for Google Classroom Links) and in person, hopefully, the week of October 19th.
