    Welcome Parents and Students!
    I am pleased to be teaching 7th grade Language Arts and 7th grade Honors English this year at RMMS! I will also be teaching the Student Government class.  This is my ninth year teaching in Utah, and my eighteenth year of teaching overall.  I have a Master of Education degree in Multicultural Education, and I speak Spanish fluently, both of which have been used frequently in my experience. 
    I grew up in Heber and graduated from the University of Utah.  I then moved to Redondo Beach, California.  I loved living near the beach, enjoying the beautiful weather, but I was happy to move back home.  I love being outdoors, and I love reading.  I have two amazing kids, and we have loved being here in Heber.

    This year, we will be using the internet almost daily as a means to access reading materials, grades, and email (for concerns and parent/student/teacher communication).  If you temporarily lose access to the internet, and your child is unable to stay after school or come early to school in order to use the school wifi, please contact me as soon as possible.  There are other available accommodations, and I am willing to work with you in any way possible.  I welcome suggestions and comments, and I look forward to meeting with each of you and working together toward your child's academic success!  
    In my class, I use Canvas to keep track of grades.  I will update grades in SIS, but it will be listed as a single assignment named "Canvas Percentage" and will never show any missing assignments.  To find missing assignments and see individual scores for each assignment, you will need to log in to Canvas with your child's login ID and check their grades.  Please check their Canvas grade at least once a week!
    I am available daily until 3:20 pm, and also by appointment.  As a parent, I understand the desire to see your children succeed.  I encourage open communication, and will gladly work with you to resolve any concerns or to achieve specific goals!   I look forward to working with your child and am positive that we have a fantastic year ahead of us!
