  1. Students should be accessing the NTI daily check-in Google Doc daily. This serves to as a way for me to see who is participating and how much time is being spent on assignments. 
  2. Assignments will be posted on our Google Classroom page twice a week on Monday and Wednesday with due dates (these will be flexible as needed) 
  3. Grades will still be posted to Infinite Campus as we proceed through NTI instruction.
  4. Daily communication will come through Google Classroom and/or Remind 101.
  5. Parents and students can contact me via email or Remind 101 (email is best)
  6. If I am not hearing from your student, I will reach out to you via email addresses provided in Infinite Campus.
  7. Stay healthy, stay safe, and practice social distancing!!!

I am proud to now call South Warren High School my home starting this spring semester of 2020. Though I am new to SWHS, I can ensure you are in good hands. My experiences teaching at WKU for 2 years and working as a researcher for the past 5 years have prepared me for the journey we are going to undertake together this year in our Physics 1 and Astronomy classes. Please use this page to stay on schedule with assignments and feel free to reach out to me whenever you need. The best way to reach me is by email!
