I am so excited to be the 8th grade reading and 5th ~ 8th Grade Dyslexia teacher this year. This is my 2nd year in Weimar ISD and I could not be more excited to be a Wildcat! I graduated from Houston Baptist University (Now Houston Christian University) in 2003 with a Bachelor of Arts  Degree in Multidisciplinary Studies and a Masters of Education in 2008. I began my teacher career in the elementary classroom and special education department. I have found a new home in Jr High. 

I am originally from Houston, my family moved to Schulenburg in 2017 and absolutely love the area. I have 3 children who attend school in Weimar. Samantha is 11 and in 6th grade this year, Mackenzie is 9 and in 4th grade and Canaan is 6 and in 1st grade this year. We enjoy time being outside (when is not too hot), we love Splashway, raising goats for the County Fair, working on service projects for WildClover 4-H, reading books, and watching movies.

Some of my Favorites are BOOKS, Mexican food, gardening, managing the WildClover 4-H Club here in Weimar and Amazon!

8th Grade Reading Homework, Quizzes, Test, 6 Week Project and AR Information 
  • 8th Grade Reading Homework (Vocabulary & Spelling) will be assigned every other  Monday beginning , August 14 and due the following Wednesday beginning August 23. We will go over the HW assignments in class on the day it is due and students will then need to study to prepare for their quizzes on Friday. 
  • Accelerated Reader (AR) - Students will be required to read independently on a daily basis. I suggest 20 - 30 minutes daily. Throughout the 6 weeks students will take quizzes on the books they read to earn their AR points and reach their 6 weeks goal. Competition and comprehension grades will be taken according to what percent of their goal they were able to meet. I will provide a weekly tracking chart to help students stay on track. You can also set up notifications to be sent to your email when students take quizzes and students may log n at home to check their progress. Please reach out if you have any questions on how to se this up! Library Days and in class AR days will happen on Fridays. 
  • 6 weeks Projects will be assigned at the beginning of each 6 weeks and due towards the end of the 6 weeks. These projects will count as a major grade. Please encourage your student to not wait until the last minute to work on their projects! 

 

HOMEWORK LAB is help every MONDAY - THURSDAY afterschool and is a great place to get help or have a quiet place to work on homwork, projects or reading AR books!!!
