I can not believe that it has already been 14 years since I graduated from Sam Houston State University and began educating young minds. Teaching is truly my passion, and my students are my favorite part of the day. Every year is an adventure. Prepare yourself for a lot of fun in learning and challenging your mind.

Pre-AP First Nine Weeks Grade Recovery

Grade Recovery Assignment for the first nine weeks will be given out on Wednesday, October 3 in class. Students can earn up to 10 points added to a major grade test. The assignment must be turned in no later than October 10th at the end of the school day. There will be no exceptions. Students may use any notes or past assignments to help guide them if needed. Hand written short answer responses will only be accepted. 

Notice and Note

Your child will be reading 20-30 minutes a day in class.  They will be filling out a Notice and Note bookmark with page numbers and sticky notes to conference with me when completed.  
I have attached a file outlining the Notice and Note: Six Signposts reading strategies. Please use this as your road map for questioning your child about his/her reading. Remember to encourage your child to read every night! The only way to become a better reader is to read, read, read!
