Ms. Jennifer Dahl
Welcome to the profile page of Ms. Jennifer Dahl, English Language Arts Teacher at West Orange High School.
I have 14 years teaching experience, 10 of which have been here in West Orange. Prior to that I taught in the Bronx,NY; Rockland County, NY; and Westchester County, NY.
In my class we use Google Classroom. If you would like to understand more about the Google Classroom, please watch this short video. Only students and faculty within the West Orange school system have Google Apps for Education accounts, therefore you will not be able to directly access your child's Google Classroom. However, please know that all of my assignments are available via that portal. An online calendar houses all assignment posts and students are reminded online about their classwork and upcoming homework that is due. Any handouts or reference materials I use in class are available to your students 24/7 there, and they know this. There is also a free Google Classroom App that can be downloaded on your student's phone to access Google Classroom as well. If you would like to know more about a specific assignment or discuss any aspect of your student's performance in my class, please feel free to email me.
At this point in your child's education, greater autonomy and personal responsibility are important. I encourage your child to self-advocate and initiate a conversation with me. However, while I want your student to become his/her own best advocate, if you ever feel the need to contact me, please do.
