Shalonda Bailey

 Dear Kindergarten Parents,

Please allow me to introduce myself and tell you how excited I am to begin a new school year.  My name is Shalonda Bailey, and I am one of five kindergarten teachers at UA.  The 20-21 school year will be my ninth year of teaching kindergarten at University Academy.  This year brings new adventures as we learn through a virtual platform.  My goals are to have your child virtual learning experience resemble the learning environment that I would have students to do in the classroom.

I am so happy to be partnering together this year!  For the next seven weeks, we will be working virtually.  Your child is required to attend our live daily lessons and small groups. The live lessons will be held through Schoology, and it will be recorded and posted. If your child misses a session, you will be able to go back and have your child watch it. Please let me know ahead of time if your child will not be in attendance so I can mark him or her absent. The required classwork, exit tickets, and learning materials are the materials your child will need to complete assignments during the week.

I am available from 7 am-3:30 pm Monday-Friday. My email address is, but you can also send me messages through the Schoology message center. Additional updates throughout the semester will be posted on your child’s Schoology account in the attendance course. Please use the following web address to access your child’s Schoology account. I am looking forward to a great year as we work together for the success of your child.


Your Child’s Teacher,
Ms. Bailey
