Beginning Monday, August 17, students must check in to their assigned Google Classroom each school day for attendance. For the first day of school on Monday, August 17, be sure to "check-in" by 2 p.m., so we can be sure you are enrolled. On all other school days, I recommend checking in for attendance by 10:30 a.m. The "check-in" will be a question to respond to and submit. Be sure to check out a Chromebook at the RFHS main office, if you need one.

Additional notes

Students' most asked questions have included where I went to school and some of my interests.

 

My childhood hobbies were playing sports, such as little league baseball, cheerleading, twirling, volleyball, track, and tennis. Writing poetry, playing saxophone, or reading was and remains enjoyable. Today I still play tennis and write poetry, songs, and news stories. I've supported the American Cancer Society Relay For Life, United States Tennis Association, and was a charter member of the Charles M. Schulz museum. Working full-time on media relations, event planning, and economic development projects is wonderful. Yet, as I began to raise my own family, switching to full-time education and part-time public relations interests worked out great.

 

After helping to teach classes and volunteer at Texas State University, Dallas I.S.D., and Refugio I.S.D., I decided to move to the Rockport-Fulton community and teach full time at Aransas County I.S.D., where I have taught since 2007. With a background in Mass Communications, Economic Development, and Event Planning, helping students learn about managing their time for studies and extra-curricular activities is a natural part of my wanting students to succeed.

 

Expectations

Be respectful.

Be responsible.
