Syllabus, classroom routine and lab safety 8/2/17

Students and Parents,

This week we’ve discussed classroom routines and procedures, the syllabus and lab safety. Students were provided with handouts on each of these topics and they were expected to sign them as well as get a parent signature. These handouts will be kept with the students in their interactive binder and or
notebook.  My 6th grade students need a 9 x 11 note book and 7th grade needs a binder with six divider tabs.

Welcome Back!

Welcome to the 2017-2018 school year.

This is my first year at Durham middle school, my 18th year of teaching and my 11th consecutive year with the Cobb County School District.  My background is in special education.  I earned my Bachelor’s degree from New Jersey City University in 2001, my Masters in from Walden University in 2008 and my Education Specialists degree from Walden in 2014. I look forward to working, learning and growing with you this school year.
