I love teaching middle school and enjoy working with all students. Over my career, I have been blessed to work in a variety of different settings at Villegas Middle School. This year will be a great adventure and learning experience in the newly created Virtual Academy.

As a teacher, I believe that every student has the ability to learn and the right to have access to a safe and caring classroom. I encourage you to check Aeries regularly to monitor your grades and contact me by e-mail at regarding any concerns. It is best to use the .org e-mail because my Google Classroom account receives hundreds of e-mails daily. I have attached the syllabus for the course.
