Moby Max

Dear Parent,

We are excited to implement a new web-based curriculum called MobyMax in our classroom. MobyMax is tailored to your child's individual needs, and I think you will be very impressed by how fast your child will excel while using Moby. Moby's features include:

-Placement tests that accurately identify where your child excels, and where his or her "missing skills" are
-Targeted instruction to "fill in" those missing skills
-Systematic review sessions that ensure that your child retains 100% of what he or she has learned

Best of all, your child can access Moby from your home computer at any time.

Students will be getting log in information at the beginning of January.

Once logged in, your child will immediately start the lessons and begin improving his or her missing skills.

You can sign in as a parent as well by selecting "Parent" from the drop-down menu and entering your child's username and password. You will be able to monitor your child's progress and even send messages to me.


I wanted to introduce myself and my new position.  My name is Sara Strickland and I am the interventionist for Sycamore.  For the past 8 years, I have taught 5th grade here at Sycamore. This year I decided to follow a different "yellow brick road" and became the interventionist for the school.  I'm very excited about my new position and getting to work with all grade levels!  Before coming to Sycamore, I taught 6th grade math and science with Shelby County.  


Let me give you a little info about myself!  I have lived here in Collierville for the past 12 years.  I am originally from a small west Tennessee town, Lexington.  I graduated with my Bachelor's in Education from the University of Tennessee at Martin, where I also received my Master's in School Administration.  My husband also works for Collierville Schools.  He is one of the assistant principals at Schilling Farms Middle.  We are privileged to have two amazing children in our lives.  Both attend Sycamore.  Addison is in 2nd grade and Stone is in the Preschool room.  I love having my babies with me to watch them grow and play at school!


Now for a little info about my new position.  The interventionist position is new this year to Collierville Schools and I am excited to be able to take part in something that will help your children and Sycamore.  As the interventionist, I teach students that might need help in certain academic areas, such as reading or math.  I am honored to help your children learn and grow!  I love seeing them every day and am sad when they leave my room at the end of class.


Please feel free to email me any time if you have any questions or concerns!  I am here to help the children of Sycamore become the best students they can be!


Mrs. Strickland
