Welcome to 'Writing Connections Class' for 6th, 7th, & 8th grades.  Let me introduce myself: I have a Masters degree in Literacy & Reading.  I have taught half of my teaching career in Polk County, & the other half in the Houston, TX area.  I also have a PE/Health & Nutrition degree.

My philosophy is that ALL students can learn and be successful, if we maintain a good attitude and put forth the effort. My passion is for each student to become the best that they can become, and for me to give my best to them also. I am looking forward to a very productive & positive year for all of us.
