    2020-2021 School Year
         To begin, I am thrilled to begin my fifth year with the HLS sixth grade team!  I'm also happy to be teaching both social studies and science! My classes will work hard to engage and master the AZ College and Career Readiness Standards from day one. We will make use of the Smartboard, my lab equipmnt and the laptop carts. 
         Remember, not everyone masters every concept right away, but everyone can if provided the support and the encouragement they need to succeed. Middle school is only a year away so let's get ready for a successful transition.  I do look forward to working with each of you!
