      It's hard to believe that the summer has come to an end!  I hope that you had some fun over the summer and got away from the heat for a little while.  We have all returned to work hard in the up coming year.  I have a lot of fun plans for us this year and promise we will learn along the way, too.   The units will include:  grammar, writing skills using Step up to Writing and the Six Traits, paragraphs, essays, poetry, short stories, and a novel study.  All of the units 8th grade will contribute to improving each student's literacy.

 Now, I would like to share a little about myself with you, so we can get to know each other better.    I was born in Dallas, Texas and lived there until I was three years old.  I then moved to Minnesota, and finally to Illinois where I grew up. I have a son and step-son who has graduated high school and moved out and bought his first home. My son is married and has a son and daughter, Maddox and Liahona!  I also have a step-daughter who is married with  a daughter named  Avery and son Mason.  This does not mean my house is empty, I have a menagerie of animals, a chocolate lab Izzy, one yorkie-poo Oliver and a cat Lucy.  

 I graduated from Northern Illinois University with a B.S. in Elementary Education. I have an emphasis in language arts, Spanish and middle school. I have my masters in secondary education at NAU with an emphasis in reading.   I have taught for 19 years at Stapley teaching various levels in the English Department.  I am very excited to be here at Stapley Junior High.  This is an awesome school with an incredible staff.  I feel very fortunate to have the opportunity to work with all of you.

      I want to work with you to be a positive influence on your family.  If you suspect there may be a problem, have questions or special concerns, please contact me.   Email is the easiest and most efficient way to communicate for common issues.
