Dear parents and students,
As our students will be working from home until further notice, I am changing my school office hours for you to contact me. My office hours will be from 9 a.m. to 11 a.m. and again from 2:00 p.m. to 3:00 p.m. every day.
Because students will be learning from home, it is imperative that we are able to contact one another. I will be using a paper grade book in elective classes, and so you will not be able to see your child's future grades online for my classes. The only way you will know if your child has missing work is through communication via school status or email. I need to know that you received messages to you. Please reply back as soon as you receive a message.
(FYI: Late work from before spring break will still need to be made up. You will be able to see those grades online once they have been turned in and graded).
The best way for students to contact me is through my email.
Parents, I will be contacting you through School Status. If I send a group email, there is no need to respond, but if I send a private email or text message, please let me know if you receive it. Parents may also contact me through School Status or through email.
My email let's me know when you have left a message for me on school status.
For students (also posted on Canvas under announcements):
Can you believe you will be doing your classwork from home? I care about each and every one of you, as you are special and unique. I know I will miss you so much. You are very capable and will do a wonderful job from home. Make me proud of you by doing your work and turning everything in on time.
Your parents know that you are supposed to be working from home. You will have approximately 1 hour per week (or 15 minutes per day) of work for elective classes.
Also, please understand that you can still fail a class. But, my goal is for you to pass with the best grade possible! The best way to pass with a wonderful grade is for you to complete your work each week, and turn it in on time. You will be using canvas and iCEV to find your work and to turn it in. So, check your canvas and starting next Monday, March 23rd.
Finally, students, please stay home as much as possible to prevent you being exposed to the virus. Please stay out of movies, restaurants, and gyms. As hard as it will be when you get cabin fever, try your best to be kind and obedient to your parents when they say you cannot go somewhere, as they love you and are trying to keep you safe and well. I am praying that we all get to come back together and that everyone stays well. Know that you can email me whenever you need to, and you are never bothering me. We are here for you!
At the beginning of the school year, August 2019, I attached the information below for you:

Family & Consumer Sciences Teacher
I love to sew, cook, read, be out in nature and in my garden. I have two little dogs, a black and white Boston Terrier and a little mix breed who looks like a teddy bear. Their names are Piggy Holmes and Watson. I also have a cat named Wendell. Below are some pictures of my family. I have a daughter, Kasi and a son, Nic. Kasi works for an attorney recruiting firm. Nic is an artist who also works for an international artist and is based in New Orleans. Then, I have two grandchildren, Seth and Cadence.
I am very excited to learn about you and your family! I love kids, and hope you will enjoy our classes together!
