I became a Panther in 2013 teaching Algebra I. Prior to joining Ridge Point High School, I worked a number of years in Alief ISD on both the middle and high school levels. Even though I get encouragement from my family to consider retiring, I find that I love the job so much that I just can't leave RPHS and helping those students who seek assistance.
I am entering my 23rd year of teaching and probably the most interesting of them all. I know last March when we all left for spring break we had no idea that we would not be back to complete the year. Then in May, I thought surely we would be back for the beginning of the school year. Here we are, online again. I want to assure you that the experience this fall will not be what students and parents experienced in the spring. If you have any questions or concerns, please reach out to me.
This year will be different, but I ask that you still purchase school supplies for your student. Here is what I model in my classroom to help students with organization.
- 2 composition books (one for each semester)
- pencils for practice work
- colored pens (I use these for notes, but they are not required)
- tape (I usually tape papers in my book)
- planner (can use electronic or paper version... some way to organize assignments for all classes)
I will be updating information on Schoology constantly. Make sure you gain parent access to that for all of the latest information and calendar.
