April Detloff  —  Title 1

I am originally from Los Angeles, CA and moved to Minnesota in 2013.  I started as a paraprofessional at the Truman school that next school year.  Since then I have received my masters degree in special education from St. Mary’s University of MN,  with licenses in Emotional Behavior Disorder (EBD), Learning Disabilities (LD), and Autism Spectrum Disorders (ASD).  I am very happy to be back at Truman working as the Title One teacher and Algebra 1 ADSIS teacher. I also hold a Bachelor's degree in Technical Management.

In my free time, I like to spend time with my family: my husband, my daughter, our English Bulldog Buttercup, and our black cats Olive and Prosciutto.  I also enjoy fishing, camping, crafting, and reading. 

Mrs. Detloff’s Distance Learning Plan

Staff, teachers, parents, and students:

First of all, I would like to thank the staff, parents, and students for being so flexible the past two weeks.  This is a new path we are all taking, and it will not be easy at times. With that being said, I will do my best to make sure that my online learning plan includes many different ways of teaching.

Effective Monday, March 30th I will be available Monday-Friday from 9am-3pm for direct learning and any questions. Please note that these times may change.

The high school schedule is as follows

1st hour 9:00-9:30

2nd hour 9:40-10:10

3rd hour 10:20-10:50

4th hour 11:00-11:30

Break for lunch

6th hour 12:30-1:00

5th hour 1:10-1:40

My daily schedule

9:00 am -1:00 pm I will be having individual and small group Title One lessons daily

1:10-1:40 I will teach Algebra 1

1:40-3:00 I will be meeting with students individually  and be available for parent meetings as needed

I will be available for meetings, please just contact me through e-mail at detloff@truman.k12.mn.us, or your child’s Google Classroom of mine.

Attendance expectation:

Attendance for my Algebra 1 class will be taken daily through a Zoom online meeting.  The same rules apply online as in class. If you are not in the meeting in the first 10 minutes, you will be marked absent.  Please keep me updated if there are any technical issues. A meeting link will be sent daily through e-mail prior to 6th hour.

Email expectation

For my Algebra 1 students, it is expected that you check your email several times a day.  Most of our communication will be through e-mail and Zoom meetings. This is VERY important for effective communication.

Accessibility of instructional materials

All materials will be posted or linked on Google Classroom.  Each Title grade and my Algebra 1 class will have their own Google Classroom (linked below).  This is the first place to go for instructional materials and communication (along with e-mail).  Google Classroom can be accessed on a Chromebook, laptop, personal computer, MAC computer/laptop, smartphone and iPad/tablet.  Please let the school know if you are having any technical issues.

Specific information for Title One parents and students

I have been in contact with you via e-mail regarding your preference for Title One service instruction.  Title One will look different than a regular class, and the math and reading interventions will be more individualized.  This will give me a chance to meet with my students a minimum of twice a week, preferably one on one. Please be patient as this is a whole new thing for all of us.  If you have any questions or concerns, please feel free to contact me and I will get back to you promptly.
