Welcome Back!

Let's make this your best year ever!

Meet the teacher

I look forward to meeting you and being your teacher for the 2015-2016 school year.
I graduated from McIntosh High School in the year...well, 1985. I completed a BA in English at The University of Georgia in 1989. Later, I earned a Master's degree in English, and in April 2015 I completed a Specialist degree in Instructional Technology. I guess you can see that I love learning!

I live in Peachtree City where my husband and I have raised two children who are now young adults. I have been singing with the Southern Crescent Chorale for the past 13 seasons, and have taught courses at Clayton State University for the last 5 years.
Although I probably sound like a very busy person, I want you to know that my first priority is my students. From now until late May, they will be my main focus.

I hope that's okay with you.

Parents --Let's keep in touch

Email is the best way to contact me. I can usually respond on the same day. If we need to talk by phone, just let me know--by sending an email, if at all possible.
There is a school voice mail system, but I don't have an outside line in my room. So please use email first. Please check my website often to get a sense of what we are studying.


May I Have Your Attention, Please?

School start time is 8:35! Car riders should be dropped off at the tower near the gym.


*Use of phones in class are strictly for educational purposes as the teacher directs. There will be times when we use the phones during class, but texting, Snap Chat, Twitter, and YikYak will likely never be part of the lesson.

Parents, if you could regularly encourage your student to make learning their priority while they are at school, I think you will be happy with the results. I know you may want to check on your child occasionally, but if you and your child could agree that you will only text or talk during lunch, that would also be one of the best things you can do for your student's academic progress.

Additionally, no bookbags are allowed in the classroom. They must be stored in a locker.
