The 3rd Quarter ended on March 13th. Students have the opportunity to improve their grade if they wish by following the instructions provided and reading the email that was sent to students on their school Gmail account on Monday, March 30. If you are happy with your 3rd Quarter grade, then you need to take no additional action at this time. Information about 4th Quarter assignments will be coming to you soon.
Ways to improve 3rd Quarter Grade: Students who completed the "Two Week English 6 Review" assignment on Google Classroom will receive a 100 test grade. This should be turned in using Google Classroom. Additionally, students that did not complete previous AOWs for homework can receive partial credit if they are completed and turned in. These are available on my website under Resources. You can take a picture of your annotations and written response and email those items to me.
This time away from traditional school has allowed me to spend more time with my family. However, I truly miss seeing all of my "school kids" each and every day. I hope you all are staying safe and making the most of this time you have. I look forward to when it's all clear for us to see each other again!
Welcome to my class. This is my first year teaching 6th grade English at PMS (22nd year teaching total)! I previously taught 5th grade at PES and in Hampton at Kraft Elementary. I am a Poquoson High graduate and am so fortunate to teach in my hometown. I have a son (12th grade) and a daughter (9th grade) who attend PHS. We are a family of sports enthusiasts so you will likely see me out and about at an athletic event. I am also the golf coach for Poquoson High School, and I coach a 14U travel softball team.
FYI - I utilize the Remind app to keep parents up to date. Please join (see the Class Information section). Additionally, we will use Google Classroom.
