Distance Learning Update 3/18/2020
Beginning 3/23/2020, assignments and instruction will be delivered through Google Classroom. You are all enrolled already so there is no extra step necessary. I will post a module on Friday for the next week. You will have all week to complete the module on your own time. I will be available in on Google Hangouts everyday from 11-1. There will be a link in Google Classroom for you to join the hangout if you have questions, comments or just want to talk. I also encourage you to comment on the Google Classroom modules. I love hearing your comments and questions in class; I will miss that. I want to still have those experiences with you the best we can. So please comment and ask questions like you would in class and I'll be responding on those posts as well. Please email me if you are having trouble access things or what to do next. email@example.com
Students who do not have access to online lessons/work: You can pick up packets at school on Mondays from 10-12 and 4-6. They will be handed out in the car rider line. You will be able to return work and pick up additional work on Mondays during those times.
Welcome to Texas History! I am an avid historian and have spent the last 14 years teaching 7th grade history. I bring my passion into the classroom everyday. I am a member of the Daughters of the Republic of Texas as well as the Mayflower Society. I am super proud that my oldest son is attending Sam Houston State University this fall and my youngest is beginning junior high. My love for Texas, history and teaching runs deep!
