Thank your for welcoming me into your community!

A little bit about me:

I graduated from the University of Minnesota in 2013 with my Masters in Education.  Since that time I have taught a variety of Health and Physical Education classes at various levels.  I also have my DAPE lincense.   I am a fun and outgoing person and I am very excited to be teaching at Seward and working with all of the students another year! I am also the Program Advisor for Fuel Up to Play 60 at Seward!

If i am not in the school you will find me cheerleading.  I have been a competitive cheerleader since 1996 with the same program and I am also a High School Cheerleading Coach.

6th Grade Daily Agenda. You will see what we are doing each day in class.  Typically most work can be completed in the classroom, but if a student does not complete it that day they are to take it home and work on it as homework to bring back to class the next day.

6th Grade Daily Journal Prompts We do these at the beginning of every class.  Every 12 journals I collect them and enter in a grade of 3 points per journal.  Journals are also checked on a daily basis.
