Background: I am currently in my 12th year as a teacher and at Kemp ISD. In my former life - I was a computer programmer for ~23 years if you don't count the numerous years that I spent fixing other people's computers for free.
I graduated from University of Texas with honors - Math degree. I taught 6th grade science for 9 years and am now starting my 3rd year in 8th grade science and head of department.
Message: I am committed to helping your child succeed in any way that I can. Please contact me when you have any concerns and we will establish a plan to handle your concerns if we feel that it is necessary. My notes and curriculum are posted on my website as I complete them (it's a moving target so I am constantly updating my notes in small ways to make them more effective!). They are available for you to download or print, to assist your 8th grader in studying. Additionally, there are STARR review notes covering 6th, 7th and 8th grade tested topics. I print and distribute this booklet at years end to assist us in preparing for our state assessment.
