This is my 22nd 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!!

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 http://my.hrw.com
Students received their usernames and passwords and should also have them written in their assignment notebooks.
