Living the Mustang Story! 
    Welcome! I'm a 1995 GHS graduate returning home to Texas with a husband and three young boys after living in California for the past 9 years. This is my 15th year as an educator who has worn many hats including junior high and Pre-AP/AP high school teacher, instructional coach, assistant principal, curriculum writer, EdTech tinkerer, and aspiring blogger. I'm passionate about building a positive learning environment with students to foster learning opportunities that are meaningful, relevant and fun. I encourage students to BYOD as technology is a tool for engaging in deeper learning and connecting beyond our four walls. (See GCISD Technology Agreements & Policies)
    Student and parent information regarding the course, AP Exam, class work, etc. will be provided on our class website. This will include essential documents such as the syllabus, pacing calendar, lesson plans, helpful websites, and other digital tools. Assignments and resources will be posted in Google Classroom. Parents will be sent a link to request access to Google Classroom as well as Remind after the first week of school. Please feel free to contact me at any time with questions or concerns.  
    Note: Visit the "Class Website" for all information and resources related to the course. Please feel free to email questions.
