Parents and Students,

I have been teaching Earth Environmental Science for the past fourteen years, although this is my third year at HRHS.  I formerly taught at A. L. Brown High School in Kannapolis, NC.  I really enjoy working with ninth graders because I have an opportunity to see them mature and grow as individuals throughout the school year.  I consider ninth grade to be the most important year of high school.  My hope is that my students will enjoy learning about the amazing planet we live on!  I am excited to be here at the home of the "Ragin' Bulls", and I look forward to a very successful school year.

Students may access all course work, including PowerPoint notes, videos, and activities through Schoology.  You may access Schoology here.  Students will receive a copy of the Earth Environmental syllabus at the beginning of the semester.  They will also receive copies of the revised cell phone and tardy policies.  The updated cell phone policy is located in the "Documents" folder, as well.  I strongly believe that parental involvement is the key element to a student's success in high school.  Please understand that I want the best for your child and their future.  Do not hesitate to contact me if you have any questions or concerns throughout the semester.

REMOTE LEARNING: We will continue to use SCHOOLOGY as our learning management software.  Please log into Check SCHOOLOGY daily for updates.  Weekly lesson plans will be posted each Monday.
