Hi! I am a born and raised Concord local and a graduate of Concord High School. I graduated college in 2016 from Appalachian State University where I majored in Health Education. I am so honored and excited to be a part of the CC Griffin team for what is now my third year and to continue to have the opportunity to teach back in the county that raised me! I am recently married and I love to spend time with my husband, our sweet hedgehog Hershey and our kittens Bear & Nellie when not at school. I am so excited to have your child in my class this year, and encourage any parent communication should you have any questions or concerns during your child's time in my class!
You can reach me anytime at my email which is email@example.com and I will do my best to get back to you within 24 hours unless it is a weekend or holiday/break when my turn around time will be slower.
You can also call the school at the following number- 704-260-6410 and ask to be transferred to Mrs. Holbrooks to speak to me by phone. My planning periods (listed below on the schedule) are the best times to reach me by phone.
I truly feel that health is an important subject as it influences all others, and am so happy to be able to teach your student this year!
Thank you for visiting our classes' website!
****Most all of our work for our Health course is completed on our online program Canvas. If a student is absent, does not complete/submit an assignment in class, or does not earn a decent grade they are allowed to submit work late or resubmit work with no late penalty up until a few days before final grades are due for report cards. The final due date will be announced and shared with the class frequently, this quarter's is JANUARY 24TH, 2020 at 4:00 pm. Any work turned in before this date will still be given credit based on the value of the work itself. After this date no grades can be changed. You can check your child's assignment grades on Canvas by asking them to login from home at anytime, or through the Parent Portal on Powerschool. Powerschool grades are weighted and should be considered the most accurate average for your student. Grades are automatically synced to Powerschool from Canvas and I will update grades at least weekly if not more often.
6th Grade A: 9:10-9:55
6th Grade B: 9:58-10:43
7th Grade A: 12:08-12:53

We use a lot of technology in my class! Almost every class we will be using a laptop. In our Health class we will be using the program Canvas to complete assignments, have discussions and complete quizzes/tests. All of the assignments on canvas can be accessed at any time as long as the student has internet access.Students can access my course on Canvas at any point by clicking on the Canvas Icon on the school homepage. If a student is missing work on canvas they can still complete and submit it through canvas. Please continue to check the parent portal for your child's current grade.
