Welcome to the TSTEM program here at Valley View HS.
I teach the English 1 Freshmen class and the English 2 Sophomore class at the TSTEM Early College Campus.
My conference period is 9th period from 3:15 pm to 4:05 pm.
My tutorial days are Mondays from 4:05 pm to 5:00 pm.
If students are absent from class, it is their responsibility to come in on Monday to make up the work for the last seven days.
Parents: Every six weeks we read a novel for all my classes, so your son or daughter will have reading/project homework for my class. I provide a free electronic copy of all the novels we read in class, and students have an option of buying a personal hard copy from Barnes and Noble if they wish.
Sophomore English 1 and English 2 classes will be taking the EOC STAAR test the last week of March 2018.
Senior English 4 classes will be taking the AP English Literature Exam the first week of May 2018.
We use a lot of technology in the STEM program which include apps/websites/hardware such as: Chromebooks, Remind, Google Classroom, Swivl robot, iPads, iMovie, eBook readers, app scanners, and Google Docs to name a few.
Parents are encouraged to join Remind so that they can see what students are doing for homework or in class.
