I later went to the University of Houston to obtain my teaching certificate.  I am certified in three different areas- Art-1-8, General Education-1-8, ESL-1-8. 
My schedule this year consists of Art II and Art III classes. This will be my 18th year of teaching art the last 15 have been at Willow Wood Jr. High and the other two in Spring Independent School District.

Well, it's nearing the end of the first semester this school year. Good behavior is expected from each and every student in my class. We will be exploring a lot of new concepts and skills in my class this year and I look forward to helping each student to be successful and develop their art skills as we progress through the school year.

3. Pencil bag labeled with name printed on the outside.

4. Inside that pencil bag a set of 24 different colored pencils- Crayola brand is the preferred brand, NO ERASABLE or

COLORIFIC Colored pencils -they do not blend well.  Please do not buy 2 sets of 12, then students will have only 12 different colors.

5. Pink eraser

These items along with the student’s sketchbook and the spiral will be used for student’s personal use in my class.

Grading Guidelines

Major assignments shall constitute 60% of the grade per reporting period. Other assignments shall constitute 40% of each grade per reporting period.  Teachers are required to provide at least three major assessments/grades and at least nine other grades (daily grades) during each grading period. Teachers are highly encouraged to provide more assessments as appropriate.  For my class, there will certainly be more in each area.

For instance:

Warm-ups grades are Daily grades and there will be one for each week of school.

Sketchbook assignments are Major grades and will be assigned every two weeks starting soon. Students will be able to work on their sketchbook assignments one day during the 2 week period after it is assigned and can work on it also when they have completed an assignment. Sketchbook assignments will be listed each time they are assigned on my teacher's Web page. Teacher web-http://wwjhs.tomballisd/ look for my name under the school directory. Then look for Art II or Art III. Sketchbook assignments are different for each class.

Regular assignments may vary and students, when given an assignment, will be told if it is a Daily or Major Grade.

Late Work- 1 Day Late= 15 points off

2 Days Late= 30 points off

After that= 0


“Students will be given the opportunity to master the curriculum and to improve one major grade per grading period according to the following guidelines:  Offered to all students who have failed a major grade assessment.  The content will be determined by the teacher.  The maximum score will be  70.  No assignment will be given to students who previously earned a 0.  The assignment will be offered at the end of the nine-week grading period.”


All grades will be up to date on Fridays unless I am absent that day.
Late work: Work will be accepted up to 3 days late with 10 points taken off for each day late. After that time student will receive 0.
Feel free to call me during the conference time period 9 with any concerns or questions. I will return phone calls within
