This is my 13th year at Conner Middle School! It's hard to believe it's been that long! I'm very fortunate to love what I do!
Here's a little bit about me:
I have a B.A. in Psychology from the University of Kentucky
I have a B.A. in Education from Northern Kentucky University with English/Language Arts & Social Studies Certification grades 5-9
I have my Masters in Educational Technology from National University in San Diego, CA
I have my National Board Certification
I believe that communication between teachers, students and parents is the key to a successful school year. There are a variety of ways that I communicate with parents throughout the school year. The first is adding each parent on my email contact list. I generate this list from Infinite Campus. I will be sending a test email the first week of school. If your email changes throughout the year, please change it in Infinite Campus. From this list, I email important upcoming events, study guides, etc. If you did not provide an email address for infinite campus, you can just email me & I will forward that information to the office. Everyday students are required to fill out their agenda, which is checked during homeroom to insure correct homework for each subject. You could write a note in there for me to read, as well. Finally, you can always call me at 859-334-4410 ext. 106. However, email is usually the fastest/preferred form of communication if there is a question or concern.
We will have various types of grades throughout a six-week grading period. Grades will be based upon daily flashbacks, exit slips, homework, Social Studies interactive notebook activities, SpringBoard activities, quizzes, tests, & projects. The point value of each assignment varies depending on the difficulty & length of the assignment.
