Welcome Back Students & Parents!

I am looking forward to a purposeful and productive 2019-2020 school year. Coming back to school is an adjustment for all involved (students, parents, & staff.) My hope is that we can hit the ground running. I will be teaching Social Studies (American History, World History, & Economics), which is what I taught before joining Micanopy Academy last year. I will also be teaching 8th Grade Reading. I sincerely hope that I can help instill a love of learning, reading, and exploring the past in your child.


Teaching is more of an art than an exact science. This applies to lesson planning. I try my best to be flexible and responsive to the needs of my students. This means I often have to adjust the lesson plan as the week progresses. So while these agendas serve as the game plan for the week, they are not written in stone and adjustments will often have to be made.


Best wishes to both students and parents. Here's to a great 2019-2020 school year. Let's get started!
