Welcome to our 2022-2023 school year! This is my 16th year in education, 12th year in secondary education and my 4th year at KHS. I earned a BS in Environmental Science (Water Analysis Technology focus) from the California University of Pennsylvania. Prior to becoming a teacher, I worked in the Hazardous Waste disposal field for many years. As you can probably tell from my picture on this page, I love the outdoors including hunting, fishing, hiking, camping and just relaxing.
Most work will be posted in Schoology. I will post video lessons for Chemistry so that absent students can keep up-to-date. To access Schoology, log into MyHumble, and click on the Schoology icon. I strongly encourage all parents/guardians to register in Schoology so you can see what your student is working on, grades, etc.
Cell Phone & Earbuds/Airpods/Headphones Policy----Please reinforce with your student!
Science classes build upon every lesson and, as such, require undivided attention to the topic at hand. Thus, it is expected that students will put their cell phones & Earbuds/Airpods/Headphones away, either in the cell phone holder at the front of the classroom or in their backpacks. Students, unless otherwise directed by the teacher, are not permitted to have their cell phones out during class. They are not allowed to respond to text messages or phone calls during class. If cell phones become a distraction, then the parent/guardian will be notified. If the problem persists, then a referral will be written.
***If a student has their cell phone or any electronic device during or after a test or quiz they will receive a zero for that assignment. ****
Please check the class syllabus for additional details about each class. "Additional course information and class resources are located in Schoology."
I'm looking forward to an amazing year with your students as we engage in lots of authentic, hands-on learning. If you have any questions or concerns, please do not hesitate to contact me by email. Thank you!
