Discipline Plan

The purpose of a discipline plan is to establish and maintain a classroom environment conducive to learning for all students.  It is my belief that students have a right to an education in an environment that makes them feel safe; is free from distractions and bullying.  I make sure each student is aware of consequences for inappropriate behavior.  If students choose to break rules or not follow procedures, I will address the student using the sequence of actions below.  Some steps may be skipped depending on the severity of the offense.

Class Expectations...You need to be

  1. Prompt
  2. Positive
  3. Polite
  4. Prepared
  5. Productive

Order of Consequences

  1. Verbal warnings
  2. Loss of DOJO points
  3. Parent contact (after 6 or more DOJO points have been lost)
  4. Demerit given and recorded by administrator
  5. Office referral

Class DOJO

The entire school is using Class DOJO. Be sure to sign up for it.  You will be able to see positive and negative behavior choices throughout the day.

November 28 - December 2, 2022

I hope that you all had a wonderful Thanksgiving break with family and friends.  We have three weeks until Christmas break.  Let's finish this first semester STRONG.  We can do this by working hard, having fun, and being kind.  I love you!

B I O G R A P H Y

This is my  24th year in the classroom and I have loved every minute of it!  I have experience teaching 1st, 3rd, 5th & 6th grades, in private and public schools.  I am from Prattville and graduated from PHS in 1986.  I have a very supportive husband, 4 sons, 2 daughters-in-law, and 6 amazing grandchildren.  I believe in challenging students to reach their highest potential in a positive, nurturing environment.  I am looking forward to a fantastic year working with you and your child!  

I enjoy reading, puzzles, sweet tea, "loaded teas" from Southern Bells Nutrition, and spending time with my family.
