Attention Parents!!!

Welcome!  I hope you and your child enjoy the Keyboarding (6th grade), Career Class (7th grade), or Computer Class (8th grade) this year.  I look forward to working with you during the nine weeks to ensure that your child is successful in class.

I would like to share a little information about myself.  I am a graduate of Laurel County High School.  I completed my Bachelor's Degree (Business Education) at Union College, and both my Master's Degree (Business Education) and Rank I (Administration) at Eastern Kentucky University.  The 2017-2018 school year will be my 28th year as a teacher at South Laurel Middle School.

I teach "Touch-Type" Keyboarding to sixth grade students, Careers to seventh grade students, and Computer Applications to eighth grade students.  My goal is to help each child be successful in my class.  I am happy to work with parents to make sure we reach this goal.

Please feel free to contact me at any time in regard to your child's progress in class.  I welcome e-mails from parents.  I am more than happy to answer any questions and will respond to your e-mail as soon as possible.  You may also contact me by calling 862-4745 during my planning period or after school from 3:00-3:30 p.m. 

In order to keep an open line of communication between parents and myself, I offer the opportunity for parents to receive periodic e-mail updates about what is happening in class (papers being sent home to be signed, parent/teacher conferences, school activities, etc.).  If you would like to receive these updates, please be sure to provide your e-mail address so you can be added to the class e-mail distribution list.

I do update grades in Infinite Campus on a daily basis as much as possible.  If you do not have access information for Infinite Campus, please see Mrs. House in the front office to sign up in order to check your child's progress online.

If your child falls behind in class, I do offer the opportunity to come to school early (my door is usually open by 7:15 a.m.) to work on assignments.  If your child is behind in class, please have your child come straight to my room upon arrival at school to complete any missing assignments.

There are several links on my webpage to additional information that you will find helpful during the nine weeks.  I hope you will use this website frequently to keep up with what your child should be completing in class.

Thank you for sharing your child with me this year, and I hope both you and your child have a wonderful year!!!
