Hello Pumas!! Welcome to the 2021-2022 school year!
This is my 14th year as a Puma. I am excited to join the English 9 team, continue teaching English 10 and ASB Leadership, as well as advise the SADD (Students Against Destructive Decisions) chapter on campus. I truly enjoy working with and mentoring students, providing tools for their academic and personal success, and coaching them as they develop into effective leaders. This year is going to be phenomenal whether you are back to walking the halls at CHS or taking a course asynchronously. I'm excited to share this journey with you all.
1. The CANVAS platform will be utilzed for weekly assignments and tasks. Always start in CANVAS, go to MODULES, and review the weekly agenda and weekly video agendas. Assignment information will be here.
2. The Remind app is used for student communication on spirit days, if an assignment has changed and for reminders for assignments. It is a valuable tool used in each class. Students, sign up to stay informed!
Any questions about assignments or student academic success should be addressed in CAT30. Come see me to get a pass. CAT30 is an intervention period embedded into our school day which allows me to support student academic success and fully respond to concerns in person.
Student academic success will naturally occur with the completion of daily assignments and by achieving proficiency on all standards. Laziness, procrastination and apathy are potential road blocks to student success, but can be overcome with hard work and dedication. Life is busy and unexpected things happen, so it is imperative that students advocate for themselves and let me know of any struggles impeding their progress in my class. Email me or come see me with concerns; let's use the intervention time to work toward success. Be your best advocate!
As you continue your educational journey remember Alexander Graham Bell's words "Before anything else, preparation is the key to success."
I'm here to help you get prepared, so you each can achieve success this year! Again, it's going to be a phenomenal year! Remember - do all things with Puma PRIDE - Passion. Respect. Integrity. Determination. Excellence. Again, welcome to Puma Nation!
