WELCOME TO MY WEBPAGE!!
I teach Social Studies and Reading for the Puma team, as well as ELL for Pumas and Bearcats! I have been teaching for nearly 16 years. I received my Bachelor's Degree from Chadron State College. I love spending time with my family. I am frequently attending my three boys' activities. My oldest son, Beau, is attending his second year at WNCC and playing baseball. My middle son, Braden, is a junior and plays football, basketball, & baseball. My youngest son, Blake, is an 8th grader and also plays football, basketball, & baseball. When I'm not at one of my sons activities I am searching for ways to make learning fun and interesting. What a year this is going to be!
6th Grade has virtually brand new World History textbooks. Your child will have their own textbook that he/she is responsible for the entire year. Typically this textbook will remain in the classroom; however, when your son/daughter has World History homework or a test to study for, he/she will always be able to take his/her book home.
Any student that receives below a 70% on an assignment may make corrections to the assignment or completely redo the assignment to receive a higher grade. I highly recommend your child take advantage of this opportunity!
However, I do not always do this on tests. The reason for this is the students most always have a review sheet to study from the day or two before the test. If a special circumstance should arise, I am more than willing to adjust the test retaking policy!
REALLY COOL WEBSITES TO CHECK OUT! SERIOUSLY, THEY'RE AWESOME!!
