    Greetings!  Welcome to my website.  Please feel free to check this website for weekly lesson plans, assignment schedules, and class announcements.  This is a great tool for communicating with parents.  So, parents, please email me if you have any questions regarding the class, or if you would like a report on your student's progress in my class.
    On a personal note:  This is my 34th   year to teach. One of those years was in Oklahoma, and the rest have been right here in Texas!   I'm beginning my 18th year here at Joshua High School.  My husband, Max, also teaches at NGC  and is coaching varsity football  and  varsity  softball . We have two daughters, a son and a dog.  Adrianne--23 and a graduate of  UNT, Allie--21-a JHS graduate, Aidan--16, a sophomore  and Sooner, our American Eskimo Spitz--14 . (Yes, we're OU fans) I love teaching and working with young people, and in my spare time---when I'm not running all over watching my kids play sports--I enjoy reading, playing golf and watching ALL kinds of sports.

    Class Supply List:  loose leaf notebook paper,  BLACK and RED pens, pencils, ,  a binder is optional--but only one binder for this class!  Other supplies will be needed according to special projects.  Students will be informed of these at the particular time, and those specific supplies will be posted here, as well.
