Hillwood Middle School
U. S. History- Beginning through Reconstruction
I am a native of Fort Worth, Tx. I graduated from Amon Carter High School
and the University of North Texas. I have a Bachelor of Science degree in
inter - disciplinary studies. I am certified by the state of Texas to teach
Grades 1-12. My specialty is in social studies, and I am certified to teach
all social studies classes at the secondary level.I love all sports and am
an avid cyclist. I have been teaching at Hillwood since it opened in 2000.
Conference time is 2:55 to 3:35.
Tutorials are scheduled Tuesday and Thursday after school from 3:45 to
4:30, however I am available most mornings from 7:15 to 8:15, and Monday and
Friday after school.
The mission for the class is to create a love and interest of history,
while mastering the key concepts of U. S. history from its beginning through
Reconstruction. My goal is to help students become independent thinkers, and
prepare them to be successful at the high school level.
To be successful in my class a student needs to be willing to work hard,
attend class regularly,come to class prepared, be attentive in class, and
have a positive attitude.Parental involvement is essential for a student to
reach his or her potential.I have high expectations of students to grow in
knowledge and maturity.
