    Harby Parents/Guardians and Students
    This year is my 5th year back to Harby Texas, as we call it on our campus.  
    We have a  of variety of great ideas, programs in place, and best teaching models to implement this year in order to enhance our curriculum and instruction to maximize student SUCCESS!  
    Also, I am thrilled to teach 8th grade Pre-Ap and 8th grade ELA which means I have the opportunity to prepare students for high school.
    They may not share the same excitement as I do; however, it will allow me to design lesson plans to increase their critical thinking skills and independent skills essential for high school.
    As a district, an inititative has been placed on Literacy to promote reading throughtout every classroom. This idea portrays a belief that students will excel by increasing their level of reading to achieve comprehension, develop a stronger vocabulary, and help them write about meaningful connections associated with texts via reading independently.  
    We will have projects and assessments at the end of the semester which will encompass the genres learned throughout the nine weeks. We will spend our time building the stamina needed to become better Readers and Writers, and set our goals on incorporating Reading and Writing within every opportunity of our curriculum.  I invite all my students to attend tutorials and will often assign some special tutorial dates for students who may require any additional help with specific skills.
    Please feel free to contact me with any questions  or concerns. 
    I look forward to a great year!
