Hello and hola!  I am normally located in room 23 where I teach sixth grade English and 7th/8th grade Spanish.  I have been teaching here at MacArthur since 2005 alongside some of the most amazing educators.  I have three kids, my husband is a high school teacher, and I love hiking, the beach, and baking, mainly because I enjoy eating it afterward.

    I post all of my daily activities and useful links in Canvas where students are expected to log in each day for their assignments.   

    Here are some links that might be helpful for you:

    • Aeries - shows all of your student's current gradesBarber
    • Reading Counts - Shows your students reading progress
    • Canvas: weekly information and work is posted
    • Reading Plus - an online literacy program that improves students' fluency and vocabulary skills.
    • NoRedInk.com - always log in with Google to this online grammar program
    • Other very helpful links can be found on the Canvas home page.  

    I am available for tutoring during my office hours:

    • Mon, Tue, Thur, Fri 1:15-2:25; Wed 12:55-1:20:
