About me!

I am so excited to have the opportunity to get to know each of your students this semester! We are off to a great start, and I can tell that our time together is going to fly! I would like to share a little about myself, in hopes that it will open up doors for communication! I am from Athens, AL where I graduated from Athens High in 2004. I earned a degree in English and a Master's in Education from The University of North Alabama where I also participated in the Theater program and was a member of Phi Mu. While completing my Master's, I worked as a writing specialist and later began teaching 7th grade at Oak Park Middle School in Decatur, AL. I married my husband in 2012 and moved to Madison. We now have an 18 month old son named Grant. This is my first year at Sparkman 9 and I am LOVING it! I am excited to teach your students how to read a text and find deeper meaning in it, but I am also excited to show them that it is okay for there to be more than one answer to a question! That is what I love about literature...it is what we need it to be for us in that moment! I hope that I get the opportunity to get to know each of you. Please know that I am here for you if you have any questions or concerns!

Weekly Quizzes

Your student will have a DGP (daily grammar practice) and Vocabulary quiz each week. They will also have a vocabulary assignment due each week. We work with these throughout the week and students have material to study. Please encourage them to spend some time with this each night.
