**E-mail will be the most efficient way to contact me because I am at a different part of the campus throughout the day. I have a device with me where my e-mail is accessible, and I will be able to return an e-mail quicker than a phone call. Phone calls are welcome, of course, but e-mail gives a quicker response.**
Dear Parents & Students:
Welcome to Flower Mound High School & English 1! I am looking forward to this semester with you; helping you grow academically & personally. English 1 is designed to prepare you for future courses, College, and the STAAR test. We will approach writing as a process while connecting to personal and real-world experiences, expand our vocabulary, learn to analyze a piece of literature, and find books that you enjoy reading!
Students are expected to view this webpage daily for assignments, due dates, supplemental materials, and guidance for anything they may have missed while absent or need more help with. I can be easily contacted through e-mail if further instruction is needed. Students are held responsible and EXPECTED to be in charge of their academic success in this class.
I am beginning my fifth year at Flower Mound High School (fourth year on the 9th grade campus). I am also a graduate of Flower Mound High School, and I grew up in the Lewisville ISD. I played softball in college for two years, and then I transferred to the University of North Texas (GMG!) where I graduated from. I am also the Freshman Girls B-Team Basketball coach and Varsity Co-Head Softball coach.
I love being with my friends and family, watching movies & Netflix, Pinteresting, being outside, and working out! Coming back to work at FMHS was my dream job, and I am incredibly blessed to be a part of Jaguar Nation. I am insanely excited for this year with y'all!
