Major: English Minor: Secondary Education
Welcome! My name is Ms. Maynard and I am the ELA teacher for team Lightning Bolts! I graduated from The University of North Carolina at Charlotte-- Go Niners! I graduated with a Major in English and a Minor Secondary Education!
During my free time, I love to read fantasy novels, spend time with my dog Jack, and work out or spend time outside. I know that this school year looks much different than the way we are used to it looking, but I know that together we can make this the best it can possibly be!

Cell Phone & Bluetooth Headphone Policy
Parents and Guardians of 8th-grade students. We have had an increase in our 8th-grade students carrying their cell phones throughout the instructional day. Students are using their phones to text each other, record themselves and each other and cheat on academics. All of these are a disruption to the learning environment. In order to help support our students in making positive choices throughout the school day, the 8th-grade team will be requiring that all students keep their cell phones in their lockers throughout the day, as in accordance with our Student Handbook. Students will no longer be able to keep their phones on their person.
We are also not allowing Bluetooth AirPods during the school day either, as students are also using these to connect to their phones and listen to music in class. We want to keep our students focused on academics during the day and not their phones, social media, etc.
Students who do not comply with placing phones and or AirPods in their lockers will receive office-level disciplinary consequences. Please discuss the importance of keeping cell phones and Bluetooth headphones in lockers with your students.
