Classroom Policies and Procedures:

  • All students are expected to model RESPECTFUL behavior towards everyone at all times.
  • All students are to come to class prepared to try their best and work hard every day.
  • Grades are posted and updated twice each week and can be viewed in Infinite Campus. All grades are based on a point system. I do accept late work and also give students opportunities to redo any assignment for a higher grade. Our goal in ESL is to move towards mastery of the English Language. Students receive grades for reading, classwork, projects, and assessments. I do not assign homework on a daily basis, only occasionally. Check your student's agenda to see what we are working on each day in class and for other important due dates for projects or other assignments.

Let me introduce myself!

I have been an educator since 1995. I spent the first 20 years of my career in Albuquerque, NM. My family and I moved to Lexington, KY in June of 2017. I am so thankful to be a part of Southern Middle School and hope to stay here until I retire! My family (my husband Scott and our two beautiful children, Carter and Clara) loves to read, travel, and spent time outdoors enjoying nature.
