• It's time to get back to work


    Welcome Back to the First Day of School,

    I am very excited to get back to what I love to do, TEACH. This year is going to be a year to be a great year for Fairview Middle School. The challenges of the past are behind us, and I am ready to help my students "Sail the Seas to Success!" We have a pirate theme this year, and Captain Kirkendoll is ready to set sail. I will be using Canvas to prepare my lesson plans and to push out some assignments, but we will also use pencil and paper when appropriate.   

    This quarter, I hope to teach Elements of Short Stories , Informative Writing, and our first Novel Study.  We will have digital access to all of the online software that you will need to complete the course and everything will be accessed through our LMS known as Canvas. I am always willing to be flexible with students. However, due dates and rules need to be followed explicitly. Get ready, get set, and let's get busy! It's a Falcon Pirate's Life For Me!
