Welcome to Mrs. Plummer's Page

Dance 1/ Health Class. apple

Hello there! I am Mrs. Plummer! I am the 8th grade Health Teacher and the Dance 1 Teacher. 
I am a graduate of Texas State University EAT 'EM UP CATS!!  This is my 6th year at Willow Wood. I previously worked with our PALS students and Special Education department. I have been teaching dance in the studio setting for 10 years and have been dancing for 34 years. I am certified in Dance, PE, Health, Special Education and 4-8 Core curriculum. I enjoy staying healthy by running and working out in my spare time. The kids will hear me constantly talking about nutrition. I love finding out new ways to get fit, trying recipes and sharing them with students. If you have any great family recipes you want to share with me I will be happy to try them. 
I am a firm believer in communication with parents and I will give you everything you need to help your child be successful.For my Health Class I will be sending out unit emails during some of our more touchy topics to parents  about the upcoming topics discuss in health class. For example, when we do a drug slide show presentation, you child will look up drugs, so do not be alarmed. Should there be any questions about a particular topic do not hesitate to reach out to me via email.  With that said we will not have a unit email, however ALL dance questions are always welcome as well. When you click on my page you will be able to see any reminders and in class lessons. I will be using Google Meets to connect with you students this yearin class. Should they need additional help or questions they can email me with the contact info below.  This way if your child looses any information between my class and hom, or in their virtual classroom, they can find it online as well. 
Below is my contact information where you can reach me. Email is the easiest way to get a quick response from me, however I do ask that you give me at least 24 hours to reply back to you. If you ever have any questions about the class your child is in, please do not hesitate to reach out to me.

My conference period is 1st period (7:30am-8:19am)


Weekly assignments are posted in google classroom

Good Morning! 
Assignments have been posted for class. 
Health Class: students should be reading chapter 18 and writing a page paper on the birth cycle. They will submit this in a google document by Sunday May 17th. 
Dance Class: students should be picking a virtual dance class and learning the combination. They will submit their performance video to me on Sunday May 17th

Dance Class

Dance I students will be learning the TMHS Silver Stars tryout dance. Although you child may not be trying out for the team this year, or as an 8th grader, the routine is a great way to learn new technique and dances. Students are instructed to learn the dance and submit a video of them performing the dance. They should not be watching the video as they perform. We want to challenge them and help them strengthen their dance abilities. Please encourage them to practice several times, not just one day and wait to submit the dance until Saturday or Sunday. Please fill free to email me anytime if you have questions. 

Health Class

Students should be reading Chapter 18 on the Reproduction Unit. They should be submitting a quiz over the Male reproductive unit so I know they actually read the chapter. This questions and reading are due FRIDAY MAY 8TH  at the end of the day. Next week they will have an assignment over the female reproductive system. 
Please take some time to talk with them and ask questions. It does help them to discuss things and ask questions. The more open they are with you the better they are about knowing the concequences and health risks.
