    "Sometimes the questions are complicated and the answers are simple."

    My high school teaching career started at Jackson Memorial High School. Then I had the opportunity to come to Jackson Liberty High School with the inaugural class of teachers, administrators and students. I have taught 9, 10, 11 and 12 grade students in English and Publication Management classes. In addition, I had the opportunity to be the first adviser of The Pride, the award winning Jackson Liberty High School yearbook. I'm looking forward to another rewarding year with my students. My mission is to help every one of my students achieve to the best of his or her abilities and use their diverse talents and strengths to meet that goal.

  • WHAT'S NEW?

    SKILLS INVENTORY ASSESSMENT will be given to every student in their English class. Assessments will be adminstered in Linkit and standard testing protocols will be followed.

    The benchmark inventory will be completed by September 21 and will count as a Class Participation Grade.

    The final inventory (for semester long classes) will be completed between January 3, 2019 and January 11, 2019 and will count as an Assessment Grade.

    More information to follow.

     

     

    A course-long project called an Authentic Assessment will be in effect for the 2018-2019 academic year for every class in the English department. Themes are grade specific and will integrate non-fiction, fiction, dramatic literature, research, journal writing and formal writing. A project and a final exam will also be part of this unit.

    The outine of the project will be posted at the start of the semester, with a syllabus of tasks and deadlines. Parts of this assessment will be graded throughout the course, and specific components will double as final examination elements. I will modify and use some parts of this project to teach the students the basic skills needed for the research process.

     

    The Final Examination components for the Resource Class is as follows:

    Journal entries 10%

    Presentation 10%

    Final Essay 40%

    Reflection - 5%

    C.R.Q.s 10%

    Empower Portion - 25%

    Students and parents are strongly encouraged to track the requirements of this project-based assessment throughout the course.
