Welcome to Health Education I'm excited to be entering my 23rd year of teaching.
I have a wide variety of skills and strategies from my experiences teaching special ed., peer facilitation, conflict resolution, physical education and health. I am currently teaching my greatest passion - health education.

80% of the grades earned in this class will come from tests, quizzes, worksheets, projects. 20% of the grade will come from the 9 weeks exam at the end of the quarter.
MISSED TESTS AND MAKE-UP WORK IS THE RESPONSIBILITY OF THE STUDENT.
Make-up policy is determined by St. Tammany Parish School Board and Covington High handbooks.
Covington High School has a Positive Behavior Support program outlined to encourage student achievement. Students are to take Personal Responsibility In Developing Excellence (Lions take P.R.I.D.E). These expectations are posted throughout the school.
