This is my fourth year 6th grade teaching at AGIS. Previously, I have taught 4th through 8th grade in Philly, OJRSD, Haverford, Penn-Delco, and England!

I am the daughter of 2 teacher parents and also the younger sister to two teacher sisters, Alexis and Tamra. I am the very proud aunt of the cutest boys ever, Avery and Damon.

When I'm not at school, I love to read, travel, bake, and most of all, shop for shoes!

Morning Routine:
1. Unpack
2. Pick a seat for the day
3. Remain in your seat until it is time to line up for Encore
1. Stay in your seat until you are called to pack up
2. Return to your seat until your run is called
**Failure to follow these procedures will result in calendar marks or silent homeroom**
Other things to remember:
1. Papers are turned in by placing them in the correct homeroom bin.
2. To leave the room sign out, place the correct magnet on the door, sign in, remove the magnet,
3. We walk in the hallway quietly in a single file line.
4. Student materials are for your use as long as they are used correctly.
5. If you are absent, check the bin for missed assignments.

Other Fun Stuff
Greek Olympics
Middle School Visit
Career Day
1:1 Technology
Calendar Rewards
Flexible Seating
(a classroom experiment)
Each day you will choose your own seat (desks, standing, floor seating, lounge, bistro, etc.) The jelly bean table is not available for flexible seating.
During whole group instruction, you must sit in a place where you can see the board/participate on floor seating with a clipboard for writing.
For the first 2 weeks of school, you must sit somewhere different each day.
The goal is to learn which work space helps you to learn best (not just where you can relax). Seating is flexible; if a space if not working for you, move yourself.
Misuse of seating equipment will result in the loss of privileges temporarily or permanently. IF WE DO NOT TAKE CARE OF THINGS, WE WILL NOT HAVE THEM.
Any adult has the right to move your seat if you are not using it appropriately, not working, distracting others, arguing, etc.
