Hello, CHS Families!
I’m excited for another great year here at Capital High School! I have been teaching here at CHS since 2005. I have two wild-women daughters, and my husband is the band director at CRA middle school. I currently teach Senior Sci-Fi/Fantasy English, Creative Writing, and Peer Mentoring.
Please peruse the attached syllabus for my English 4C class. Let me know if you have any questions or concerns; I’m always happy to talk about the wonderful things your student is learning and experiencing in my class. Our curriculum is designed around the Montana State Content Standards for ELA (located on the Montana OPI website).
My philosophy on homework? I truly believe that students should have a glorious life outside of school where they get to explore their own passions; hence, your student will not have homework often from my class. If they’re not on task, or they work at a slower pace, they might have a few minutes of homework; however, I try to make sure students have ample time in class to get the work done. If your student is absent, I will always post the day’s assignments for makeup work on Microsoft TEAMS. Your student can just complete their makeup work on TEAMS and message me when it’s completed.
I want all of my students to know they are valued, talented, and can be successful in my class; hence, please know that I will make myself available to aid your student in any way I can.
Thank you! I look forward to a fantastic year with your students here at CHS.
