Welcome to the 2020-2021 school year. I cannot believe that I am about to start my 7th year at Palmer High School. This is also my 26th year of teaching English, and it is still my favorite subject...I love what I do! Just a little bit about myself...my husband and I have been married for just over 27 years, and we have 4 beautiful children (Erika, age 26; Jonah, age 22; James, age 21; and Emilee, age 17, as well as four grandchildren---Jacob just turned five years old, his little brother Jensen is almost two years old, Isabella is almost 4 and a half years old, Levi is two years old, and he has a little brother on the way (due in January 2021) . I graduated from Corsicana High School in 1991, Navarro College in 1993, and Sam Houston State University in 1995...go BearKats!
I am looking forward to getting to know each of my students (whether they are face-to-face or virtual learners) and hopefully instilling a love (or at least a like) for English. I have high expectations for each of my students, yet I realize these expectations cannot be met without a passion for teaching on my part. I try to make myself available to my students before and after school, as well as during Activity Period. I can easily be contacted through my school email at firstname.lastname@example.org or by calling the school.
Thank you for allowing me the opportunity to teach your children. If I can ever be of any assistance, please do not hesitate to contact me.
