I am excited to be starting the 4th Quarter with you! Our class may look a little different than what we are used to, but we will navigate our way through this change together. Here is some information you may find helpful.
When we have live instructional sessions or small group meetings, they will be on Fridays according to the following schedule:
1st period: 1:30-1:45 pm
5th period: 1:45-2:00 pm
3rd period: 2:00-2:15 pm
6th period: 2:30-2:45 pm
7th period: 2:45-3:00 pm
**We will try this schedule for a while and see how it works. Subject to change (if needed).
It is going to be very important that you check your PCPS GMail account and our Google Classroom at least once a day as these will be the primary ways that I will communicate with you during the 4th quarter.
Assignments will be posted on Google Classroom. We will also have Google Meets on Fridays. From our Google Classroom home page, there will be a link at the top of the Stream page and at the top of the Classwork page. You will not be able to join until I am on-line, so you may have to check back periodically because I may be finishing a Meet with another class period.
If you are not sure how to join or use Google Classroom or just need a quick refresher, please take a moment to watch this short video. How to Sign-in to Google Classroom and Access Materials
I will have office hours all quarter where I will be available to help you or answer any questions you may have.
My office hours will be M-F from 9-10 am.
Please don’t hesitate to email me if you have questions!

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.
