Welcome to the 8th grade! I have almost 30 years of experience at the middle school level as a teacher and an administrator. I love working with middle school students. I look forward to working with you and your child during this coming year. You will see lots of changes with your children this year as they mature and prepare for their high school years. It is going to be a great year. I have an open door policy. However, as a courtesy to our teachers if you have a classroom issue please meet with the teacher first to give them an opportunity to address your concerns. Please feel free to call or come by if you have any concerns that cannot be addressed by your child’s teacher or the school counselor. Go Tornados!
