I have been in Tomball since I was a kindergartner! I went to Lakewood Elementary, Beckendorf Intermediate, and graduated from Tomball High School. I graduated college from Sam Houston State University with a Bachelor's of Science in Elementary Education with a specialization in Reading and began teaching at Tomball ISD in 2002. I am certified to teach K through eighth grade and English as a second language.
I was born in the Houston area, but have lived in the Tomball area since I was a year old. I have been married for many years to my wonderful husband Desmond and we have three beautiful children. I also have three dogs! One of my dogs is a Great Dane named Princess, the other is a miniature Chihuahua named Thor, and an American Bully named Dozer. I enjoy spending time with my family, watching football (GO TEXANS!), watching my children play sports, and reading great books.
Good evening parents,
On the second week of school students began a pre-instruction personal narrative. This is designed to see what students know about the writing genre prior to instruction.
We spent time last week and this week taking a closer look at personal narratives/memoirs and at the elements essential to this type of writing: a seed idea, sequential order, vivid details, strong emotions, dialogue, and a reflective ending.
We started by reading examples of good writing. Next, students used a Google form from my Google classroom to learn how to revise their paper. Revising Personal Narrative Form
Some students chose to start a completely different story—which is absolutely acceptable. The Google form takes the student through steps and videos to improve their narrative. All revisions are in their INB and when they are ready to write their final it should be on notebook paper. We will continue working on them in class tomorrow, but if your child does not finish, then it is homework. The final narratives are due Friday, September 21, 2018 for a major grade.
If you have any questions, please let me know. Have a great evening.
