I also hold a Masters of Education in Educational Leadership and Science Education from the University of Concordia Portland. I started teaching at FMS in 2009 and have been in 8th grade since 2012! My husband and I got married in 2009 and enjoy raising our two kiddos in the Hutto Community.

Good Morning Students and Parents,
I hope you are doing well and enjoyed your break under the current circumstances. This is going to be a learning curve for all of us, but please know you are NOT alone. If you need help with anything please don't hesitate to reach out and I will do my best to help you or find someone that can.
We do NOT expect you to recreate our classrooms at home, we will be pushing out lessons using methods that your students are already used to using in our classrooms and can even do on their phones or tablets.
- All assignments and material will be pushed out through google classroom, please expect something new each day. Each assignment will take about 15-20 minutes.
We are not recreating the wheel, we are just adjusting it to fit this new method of instruction!
I will miss seeing each of you every day, please don’t hesitate to reach out through email if you have any questions or need me to explain anything else!
We've got this!
