While I graduated from Alvin High School, I am a loyal Manvel Maverick.
This is my 14th year at MHS, and my teaching assignment for 2020-2021 is English IV all day. My conference period is 2nd (8:20 AM - 9:00AM).
ENGLISH IV is all about reading and writing for various purposes for academic growth and career readiness. We will be reading and writing every day. Every other week I will meet with each student in a reading/writing conference. In addition, my classes will be exploring graphic novels as a genre and reading chapters from a non-fiction text about practical "adulting" skills as part of two grants aimed at increasing reader engagement and preparing students with 21st century skills.
On a personal note, My husband of 32 years, Coach Smith, is MHS's Head Tennis coach and teaches Health and Credit Recovery. We have three kids: Sheridan (31), Conner (29), and Ivan (26). We filled our empty nest with three joys: Roscoe (Bulldog, 5), Howie (Boston Terrier, 5), and Buttercup (Bulldog 3) . I enjoy reading, coffee, and laughing with my family and friends.
I look forward to another great year of teaching and learning.
