Remote Learning /Online Classroom Update:
We will use Google Classroom for our remote learning assignments and activities. Assignments will be posted each Monday by 7:15 am. Assignments will be due no later than 11:59 pm on Sunday following. Messages to students will be sent through Google Classroom and occassionally Remind. Students should contact me through email, if they do not have Google Classroom or a Remind set up for our class.
Students will find weekly assignments listed in Google Classroom. There will be a weekly prompt that students will need to respond by Friday at noon for attendance purposes. All assignments will be listed in order of needed completion with due date listed when assigned. Assignments for the week will be due no later than Sunday by 11:59 pm. Be sure to complete all assignments prior to due date. Students should expect to complete assignments using their textbooks, posted readings and activities, online class discussions and forums, online videos, etc. We will be accessing several tools and resources such as: Google Docs, turnitin.com, padlet.com, our Library's databases, YouTube, etc.

I am a Social Studies teacher. This year I will be teaching two 11th grade cores (U.S. History) and Civics.
I began my teaching career at Horizon High School in November 1999. In addition to teaching social studies, I am a reading teacher/reading specialist. I am passionate about supporting students' reading improvement and incorporate many reading strategies into my daily lessons. I am willing to support all students in improving their reading. As a firm believer that all students need to participate in some extra-curricular activity that provides them with a core group of other students with similar interests, I sponsor of the Creative Writing Club.
Students are able to access class materials on Google Classroom. The best way to contact me is through my email firstname.lastname@example.org
