About Me: Hello. This is my 21st year in education. It is my 13th year in Sealy ISD and my eighth year at the junior high. I am looking forward to another successful year!

Remind 101

Remind 101 is a wonderful tool for communication. I will use this to send reminders about upcoming tests, quizzes, projects, due dates, etc. It would be beneficial for BOTH parents & students to sign up to receive these important reminders.
