Background

 

This is my 23rd year at St. Vincent de Paul.  In 1997, I was hired to teach 6th grade and the following year moved up to 8th grade. I love this age group!!

My husband, Randy, and I have been married for 22 years.  I have twin boys who will be sophomores at Skutt this year!!   I am originally from Earling, Iowa.  I attended Creighton University and graduated with a double major in Education and Psychology in 1997.  In 2003, I  earned a Master's Degree in Curriculum and Development. In May, 2018, I graduated with another Master's-in Educational Leadership.  

Communication plays a very important role in the success of your child's school year.  If you ever have any questions or concerns, please do not hesitate to call or e-mail me.  The best time to reach me during the day is from 8:45-9:15 or after school until 4:00 (402-492-2111).

Classroom Information and Links

The 8th graders study American history. They will have two major projects this year and will have first and second semester finals.  The 7th graders study world geography. They will be focusing on different regions of the world and specifically examine the cultural and geographical features of each region.  My grading policy: daily work accounts for 50% of the total grade and tests and quizzes account for 50% of the total grade.

The web site link for you or your child to access the on-line 7th grade textbook, World Geography, is https://www.hmhco.com/one/login/

Students received their usernames and passwords and should also have them written in their assignment notebooks.

The 8th grade American History textbook is also available on-line; click here.

 
Extra credit opportunity:
One PowerPoint per quarter over a chapter we will be covering (check with Mrs. Z before you make the PowerPoint to know what chapter to use).
-15 slides of information-Title and "The End" slides do not count
-5 points and 2 pictures per slide (should include pictures, maps, charts, etc...)
-Only 2 slides can be used for vocab words.
-Include sources.
--If you do not meet the criteria, you will not receive the full 5 points.
At the end of the quarter, the points will be added to the lowest test score.
