8th Grade Teacher
Hello and welcome
to the 8th grade!
I will be your teacher for the following subjects during the 8th grade school year: English. Literature, Social Studies, and Religion. We will have many activities and projects in which the students will be able to demonstrate their knowledge and talents, as well as grow spiritually through various service projecs.
My background is in Education. I began teaching in 1989 after I earned my BS in Science at the University of North Texas. After graduating, I immediately began teaching and coaching various sports. I completed my first ten years teaching in Texas and then moved to California in 1997. I have taught in both Fairfield and Travis Unified School Districts. In 2013 I was offered a temporary position at Holy Spirit and the following year I accepted a full time position as the 8th grade teacher.
My philosophy in education is that each student has the ability to learn and be successful. My goal is to help my students to reach their fullest potential in order to be prepared for integration into high school.
The 8th grade year is one of the fastest years at Holy Spirit, so put on your running shoes and make sure to be ready to go!
