Welcome to seventh grade!  This year I will be teaching Social Studies. Some of the topics we will explore are the Renaissance, the Enlightenment, the Reformation, Revolutions, World Wars I and II, the Great Depression, the Holocaust, Korea, and Vietnam.

This is my seventeenth full year of teaching at Western Middle with twenty-six years of experience. I graduated from the University of North Carolina at Greensboro with a degree in education.  I enjoy reading, music, travel, and spending time with family.  My husband and I live in the Western zone, and we have two daughters who went through Western Middle and Western High. 
It is exciting to see my students' progress throughout the year, and I always encourage parent involvement.  Please feel free to email me with questions or concerns.
Using this site:   Although assignments may be posted online, the student planner is the "master copy" for student assignments.  Assignments may change at the teacher's discretion.  In the event that there are technical difficulties that prevent posting or receiving of assignment information, please refer to the planner.  The planner should always have the final and accurate assignments.
Some of my favorite quotes:
"Far and away the best prize that life offers is the chance to work hard at work worth doing."  ~Theodore Roosevelt
"The more that you read, the more things you will know.  The more that you learn, the more places you'll go."  ~Dr. Seuss
"A person who won't read has no advantage over one who can't read."  ~Mark Twain
