We are looking for a wonderful year. I am a graduate of Northwestern State University. Welcome to Fairview Junior High! What an honor to teach your child. Teaching is a calling for me that I love. I began teaching in 1996 and worked most of my career in Texas. I love the Alvin ISD family and enjoy the community here as well. I believe that if you give a student an idea…they will build upon it. Together your child and I will find "what works" to give them confidence and determiniation to make this year successful. I have three children and love to attend local sporting events from baseball to volleyball! Share your ideas with me. It takes all of us to make a great year for your child. My favorite quote is:
The best way to have a good idea is to have lots of ideas.

They should be reading 20 minutes every night or 120 minutes weekly. If they miss turning it in on Friday, they may turn it in late for -10 points (day 1), -20 points(day2), -30 points (day 3). Students may also complete a Journal Response about the book they read rather than completing the Reading Log. The student needs to visit wtih the teacher for the journal prompt. They may also make up their reading time in tutorials. Please see tutorial times listed below. Happy reading!Lone Star Reading ListRead and join us for our 6th grade FJH Lone Star BBQ Luncheon during school. Read three Lond Star books before Thanksgiving and pass the AR test.

Compliments for every child are important to their continued success. Often, I give them notes, write letters home, write emails or make phone calls to parents to share the good news.TUTORIALSPreparation strategies for the STAAR Tests are part of our classroom "testing" genre. I also offer tutorials: Tuesday, Thursday from 8:05-8:35 and Thursday afternoon from 4:05-5:00. I am happy to help.INTERACTIVE NOTEBOOKIn our classes, we develop interactive Reading Notebooks that collects the work of each child during the year. From foldables to student manuscripts and journal entries, each one is unique for every child.HOMEWORKRead thirty minutes every night. Students are able to check out up to three library books. Any work not completed in class, may be completed at home or in tutorials. Also, each student created a reading goal. Please encourage them to read nightly to meet their personal goals.LIBRARYThe library is always open for students in the morning and during school. In addition, our classes are scheduled to go every other Monday. Occasionally due to holidays or teacher work days that fall on a Monday, our classes will go the following day. Also, each teacher has a library sign-out pass to encourage students to go to the library. Your child may go, any day, during any class, with teacher permission. Here's to happy reading!! Parents please check out Young Adult Books, also known as YA Books. This will provide examples of the types of books available at the Junior high level.Conference TimePlease email me to set up a conference time.
