Welcome to middle school 7th/8th ELA and the new College & Career Awareness Elective! I am extremely excited to be working with all of you this school year. I always post information and explanations for assignments on my LPSSA teacher page and in Google Classroom (when applicable). Please be in the habit of always checking/reading my LPSSA teacher page first. An explanation of assignments will also be posted in Google Classroom if the assignment is to be submitted there. Please remember to access the online textbook and resources (MyHRW) through Clever. Students are able to email their teachers using their pvsdcamarillo.org address. They may also type a private comment/question directly to me in Google Classroom assignment posts. I feel that communication and understanding are two key components to being successful. In addition, it is expected that all students are respectful of both staff and peers. Please know that I value and endeavor to create an environment that allows students to feel comfortable with taking academic risks and not being afraid to make mistakes. I look forward to a positive and productive school year of learning and personal growth.

Join PTO!IMPORTANT INFORMATIONIt is with pleasure and enthusiasm that I welcome you to the 2021-2022 school year. I am very excited to be working with all of you, and I look forward to a great year of learning and growing! If you ever need to contact me regarding your student, please do not hesitate to send me an email to the following address: firstname.lastname@example.org, or you can call me at 805-383-5330. I look forward to working with you and your student this school year.While I strive to post homework assignments on the website nightly, there may be occasions when that will not be possible. Ultimately, students are responsible for knowing what their homework is at all times. Assignments, which include class work for the day and homework, are posted daily by 4:00 p.m. Using an agenda book/student planner/Google Keep is a skill that is imperative for success in all academic areas. Additionally, changes made in the classroom are not always reflected on my teacher page.Homework Center (Camarillo Library Homework Center)ABOUT METhis is my twenty-seventh year in education, and this is my eleventh year teaching at LPSSA. I have previously taught at A. E. Wright Middle School, Taft High School, Channel Islands High School, and Conejo Valley Adult School. I have lived in Camarillo since 1978, and I am a graduate of Adolfo Camarillo High School and CSUN. I have degrees and teaching credentials in both English and ESL (English as a Second Language). My husband and I are the proud parents of two wonderful children. Our daughter is a Kindergarten teacher and is completing her Master's Degree at CLU, and our son attends Moorpark Junior College. My husband and I have been very happily married for twenty-six years. In my spare time, one can find me either spending time with my family, walking my dogs, riding my bike, reading a good book, or relaxing in Big Bear.
