RHS English

Welcome to my teacher page!

 

     I have been teaching in Randolph for 33 years--23 years at the high school and 10 at the middle school.  This year I will be teaching English III Honors/AP Language and Composition, which I have taught for the past 13 years, and Freshman IB.  My goals for my students are simple: be the best person you can be; do what needs to be done; trust in the partnership we will create this year.  My goal is not only to make my students better writers and thinkers, but to make them great citizens.  My door is always open to my "kids".

     As the mother of three (all college graduates now), I know how busy students are--especially those taking AP/honors courses and playing sports or involved in many activities.  Students electing to take AP courses need to stay organized and keep up with the work load, which is the only way to survive junior year. Freshman, this is your time to build those organizational skills and get on the right path to be successful at RHS.  Here's to making this a great year!

All students eligible for NHS selection,  juniors and seniors with an unweighted GPA of 3.5 or a weighted GPA of 4.25, are notified in the first week of September.  NHS candidates not only possess scholarship, but must also demonstrate the other three pillars of leadership, service, and character.  A five-member faculty selection committee  (which does not include me) will evaluate the candidates and determine whether they meet all four pillars.

The Purpose of NHS is to create enthusiasm for scholarship, to stimulate desire to render service, to promote leadership, and to develop character in students of secondary school.
