Chester Upland School of the Arts
Vanessa Odom's Classroom
I am Dr. Odom-Harris (Dr. OH) your Fine Arts Dance Instructor at CUSA. I am also home with my two children and family members just like you! This year will be great as we learn how to use our bodies to express ourselves and relieve stress. We will also learn how our bodies and minds work and how to keep them clean and healthy. Just like some of you, my family and I love to dance and workout. We use dance as a form of expression. Sometimes, we are inside other times we take our dancing outside. You will be learning new things this year. Be patient, take your time, and ask questions. Please remember to have fun and always try your best. If you can walk and workout, you can dance!!!
You will find your Fine Arts Learning Plan through your homeroom teacher's Google Classroom. One member of the Fine Arts Team will see you each day through your homeroom teacher's Zoom Room.
Well Dr. OH, what about your Zoom Room, you say? My Zoom Room will only be used for individual conferences with parents and students, as well as, office hours, which are listed above. If you need to contact me send me a message through your Google Classroom or email me at email@example.com . We will be able to set up a meeting with you or any other appropriate parties.
We look forward to seeing you all again and meeting all of our new friends.
Stay Safe and Healthy,
Dr. OH (Dr. Vanessa Odom-Harris)
