    IMPORTANT:  Due to Governor DeWine's decision to close schools, students will be doing assignments from home. We had just finished reading "Flowers for Algernon," and the packet your student is bringing home is full of activities we would have been doing in class.
    Additionally, we would have been working on our reading project and articles of the week, so they will also receive CommonLit articles to work on as well.
    Please have your student read SOMETHING, ANYTHING for each day.  P
    If you have any questions, please feel free to contact me. Stay well.

    Upon graduating from Wright State in June of 1994, I began teaching in the Tipp City Schools. I spent the first few years of my career teaching English and world history and serving as drama club advisor at Tippecanoe High School. In August of 1996, I moved to L.T. Ball Junior High where I taught language arts to 8th grade.  At Tippecanoe Middle School, I currently teach 8th grade reading and language arts and serve as the 7th grade Power of the Pen coach.
