Welcome to my Website!

This is my 2nd year at Howard Middle School.  I have lived in Florida for 3 years, but originally "born and raised" in Louisville, Kentucky. I have 3 children and 3 grandchildren!  

We are taking on a very challenging, but exciting new year at Howard.  In the classroom and online there are many forms of information accessible thru the Howard Middle Website.  The media center has given access to e-books, for both information/research and entertainment.  In my online "classroom" my students will use e-books/e-text, which can be found in the schedule of courses being taken each quarter.   Students grades will post in Skyward.  

The first week of school we covered: school expectations/rules, classroom expectations/rules, covid information/procedures, and will continue use this information throughout the year for the safety of both, our students and staff.

Students need to have either a 5-subject notebook, or a binder with dividers for: reading, writing, homework, and journals

The first five-minutes of class will be spent on "bellwork"

Every week, on Monday, students will bring home a "reading log."  They are to read 20 minutes per night, M-F, and the information will be written in the log and returned to the room on Monday.  Parents will need to inialize each entry before students can turn them in for credit.  Students are allowed to read whatever they choose.  

I will keep a weekly planner/schedule of assignments listed on my website, along with assignments listed in Microsoft team.

If there are questions or concerns please contact me at: or call the main office at Howard.
