Welcome to 7th Grade Reading!

Our big ideas in this course are

Response to Reading

Critical Thinking

I love teaching middle schoolers, and I am passionate about reading. This is my 3rd year at HPMS, having previously taught in Conroe, North Carolina, and Austin. I have been a teacher for 15 years, teaching everything from 4th grade to seniors in high school. I am currently work on my masters in Library Science from UNT and hope to one day be a librarian here in KISD. 

Students can come in for extra help M-Th afternoons until 4:30pm or before school by appointment.
