  • Welcome!

    I can't believe this time next week we will be back to school!  I am very excited to meet you all and even though we are starting in a way that is new and different, I want to assure you that I have been hard at work all summer getting ready to make sure I know how to deliver high quality instruction to you.  

    If you haven't already- please have a look at my bitmoji classroom on the overview page. Click the links and figure out what they do.  Right now, since we aren't "live" yet, some of the links will just take you to pages that you don't have access to yet- no worries- you will soon!

    What do you need DAY 1?   Access to the internet, and a device such as a chromebook or laptop with webcam.  If you do not have a chromebook, please contact your district or our school directly so we can be sure to get one into your hands. Last year, many students found headphones with a mic really helpful.  They aren't required.  I dont always us mine but if I do I usually just use the cheap ones that came with my phone or my wireless Beats if I am feeling fancy.  I also have some of those gamer headphones that probably work a little better but feel clunky to me. If you get distracted easily headphones help.

    Be sure to have a pen or pencil to write with and something to write on- a spiral notebook is great for notetaking.

    If you are heading out to buy school supplies- in a couple weeks you will need 3X5 notecards (at least 200).

    I have made the decision to NOT require scrubs until semester 2. Instead, I'd love it if you can use  some the money you'd spend on scrubs to obtain a BP cuff and Stethoscope.  There are many types out there and I will discuss the best ones with you as you get ready to begin your career.  In the meantime, I scoured the web and found a set that has okay ratings and is CHEAP:  Dixie Ems BP Set.   You dont have to get this one- shop around and do your research and pick whatever on you think will work for you. This will help us work from home on this important skill and will give us a huge headstart when we come back together in person. Get any color or design you want- it just has to be manual- not automatic.  You do not need this day one, but the sooner you can get, the better.

  • Google Classroom

    Dont forget to check the google classroom and your email each day M-F for important class updates!  We are only a few weeks away from final grades and issuing college credits to those who have earned them, so we aren't done yet.

    Remember- the building is closed, but school is open!

    Well I listened to my own lecture again and I'm not a fan of the actress that plays me in this movie.

  • Patient Comfort Lecture

    Posted by Rebecca Martinson on 4/15/2020 6:00:00 AM

    Hello Students!  


    Happy Wednesday!  Hopefully everyone is logging into google classroom every day.  I have uploaded a lecture for you.  It is 20 minutes long.  I will attach the file here, as well, and give you a copy of the power point.  Be sure to log in to google classroom and answer the quiz questions. You will need to listen to the video, as you wont be able to answer the questions from just reading the slides. 


    There will be an exam covering the Patient Comfort Unit on Friday.  It is not long, and you can use your notes. 


    Patient Comfort Lecture

    Lecture Notes


    "Stay safe and healthy.  Please read the urgent notice from Skagit County Health Department released today.  I know its hard, but we really need to stay home and away from others. 

    We had 8 new COVID-19 cases confirmed overnight. EIGHT. That's a big spike, and it's bad news. That's not even the total for the day yet.

    Look, we get it. You're tired of this, and you think this one little trip (or three) won't hurt. But it will.

    Every non-essential trip you take is irresponsible and reckless. If not for yourself, then for someone else. Just because things seemed to be getting better there for a day or two doesn't mean this fight is over.

    Everyone needs a grandparent. A mom, a dad, a best friend. Don't be the one who spreads this and causes someone to lose theirs.

    Maintain physical distance between you and anyone not living in your house. Do not allow anyone into your house who does not live there, and do not enter anyone else's house. Wear a mask when you make your essential trips, and if it's not ESSENTIAL, don't go. Wash your hands.

    Together, we can keep this painful time as short as possible. But it's going to take all of us. Together.

    Thanks for doing your very best"

  • Back to Business!

    Posted by Rebecca Martinson on 4/13/2020 6:00:00 AM

    Hello Everyone!  Welcome back to business.  I am working hard to see what certifcations we can end this year with and what all I can offer you!  More info to come to you as soon as I have it myself. In the meantime, I will need you all to do your share by checking your email, the google classroom and learn.aeseducation.com once per class day- so at least 1 time Monday, Tuesday, Wednesday, Thursday AND Friday!  I don't want you to miss out on anything important! It is imperative that you let me know ASAP if you are having trouble accessing any of these- usually I can trouble shoot it for you!

    If you have a look at the google classroom you will see some new assignments posted.  Unless there is a test that is open for a specific amount of time, you will see assignments posted on Mondays and Wednesdays- Typically with Monday long assignments due Thursday at 2359 and shorter assignments due Friday at 2359.  Be sure to watch the due dates! I know that life happens,so reach out to me if you need extensions, etc.  I am going to try to stick to a somewhat rigorous schedule for the remainder of the year, so you all have the best possible base of knowledge to take with you into your careers.


    Some of you have reached out for additional learning- I have opened some special Advanced Study units in AES- if you're interested- send me an email so I can invite you. You should be sure you are getting your work for me and your other teachers done BEFORE doing any advanced study work.  If you do get an invitation- reach out to me to see what the best logical order to proceed will be.

  • Spring Break Update

    Posted by Rebecca Martinson on 4/6/2020


    I miss you all.  My heart is broken.  I will be picking myself up and putting things together for you this week; I want to be completely ready when we get back to business on monday.  We are going to RISE up and get through this together. I know you will. 


    I won't be assigning new work during our previously scheduled Spring Break, but I am available by email so please reach out to me if needed.  If you've been following the news, you know that Superintendent Reykdal has decided today that we will not have in person classes for the remainder of this school year.  We are online! This is a scary and confuisng time for everyone.  We will make it through this together.  Plan on being business as usual- from your house- On April 13. 


    Please be sure that you reach out to me if you are struggling to get on to the google classroom or anything else.  I am here.  The buildings are closed.  School is open. You are loved. I made you a little slideshow to remind you who we are, where we've been, and where we are heading. 


    Mrs. Martinson
