Dear Parents and Students,

As we navigate this unusual time I wanted to take a moment to help everyone understand how to access learning in my class and assure everyone that I am doing my best to be as fair and as understanding as possible. There are several ways to stay informed and keep in touch with me. As we continue online teaching, I am excited about the new ideas and ways that we can work together to navigate this new learning style.  Please understand that just like you I am learning to navigate this new education format. There are bound to be hiccups and a learning curve for all of us to work through.  I have new instructional resources I'll be using this year and some resources I have been using that will require students to sign up in addition to Canvas. As always, parents are welcomed to sign up for any and all resources so you can stay informed of the assignments assigned. However, to see/discuss specifically your student's information, please email me anytime for updates or sign up with Remind to text me. Below I will explain the use of each program I am planning to use this year...

Email: contact me with specific questions, help, make appointments, or send information that you think I need to know

Remind: class announcements and secondary way to contact me, through this app you can text me directly

Playposit.com: Class assignments that are video related

Microsoft Teams: Virtual classroom instruction both live and recorded, live face to face conversations via class time and office hours

Ms. Amber Williams

I am a native of Charlotte, NC, and an East Mecklenburg Senior High graduate. I attended UNC Charlotte and graduated with a BA in History and Dance Education K-12 in 2002. After graduation, I taught at Pine Forrest High in Fayetteville, NC for one year and Apex Middle School in Apex, NC for four years. In 2007, I left North Carolina to obtain my MA in History at UNF in Jacksonville Florida, where I was a graduate teaching assistant.  I taught World Civilization I. After graduation, I taught in MLK Middle School in Charlotte, NC before the US Navy took my family and myself to Spain. I had the wonderful opportunity to teach elementary at the Department of Defense School, DGF, for two years.  Returning to the United States in 2015, the US Navy took my family to San Diego California, where I continued to follow my passion for teaching. I taught at Gompers Preparatory Academy Charter School. I taught several grade levels, 7th, 8th, and 11th-grade summer programs. I have had the unique privilege to teach a wide variety of students ranging from Kindergarten to college across our wonderful country and to service member families overseas. I believe my experiences and travels give me a unique perspective and I strive to provide a comprehension world view to my students that challenge them to think for themselves and beyond their familiar borders. I love to bring a personal touch to many of my lessons. Through my travels with the US Navy, I have been to many of the places I now teach about.  I love to add personal touches from my own world experiences and those of my students and their families. I encourage the families of my students to be involved in my lessons and share their experiences so that we, as a community, can give students the best education from as many viewpoints as possible. I look forward to an exciting school year!
