I graduated from Southwest Texas State University and have been teaching for 16 years. I am loving the energy of the junior high and am thrilled to work with your children. My husband, Adam, and I have been married for 18 years and have 3 children: Kylie, a junior at SHS; Kendall, a freshman at SHS and Cole, a 7th grader. We all love our Tiger family!

Late Assignments, Test Re-Takes and Assignment Corrections:
Any assignment can be made-up or corrected for credit, up until the end of each grading period. Late assignments, except under special circumstances, will lose 10 points. I am available every day before school for corrections and make-up work.
After students have been warned twice for disruptive behavior, there will be a private discussion away from the class regarding their behavior, and problem-solving with the intent of returning to classroom activities. If an understanding is not achieved, they will be given a referral to the office. Depending upon the nature of the behavior, students may be given an after school, or lunch, detention. If students are given a detention, or are referred to the office, their parents will be notified.
