Welcome to my 8th grade Louisiana History Class.  This is my 21st year teaching and my 21st year at Harry Hurst Middle School. I am looking forward to sharing my passion for Louisiana's history with your student. I am looking forward to fostering a growth mindset in my students and myself and being mindful as we grow and learn. I am part of our School Improvement Team and serve as the leader of Team 5. 


This year I will incorporate Google Classroom with our district provided Chromebooks. Google Classroom is a tool that allows me to post announcements and reminders for students. It also allows for class assignments and submissions to be posted and collected digitally.

To access Google Classroom please use the following link and have your child log into their Google account. Once logged in, you can review class announcements, assignments and course information. You can also view Google Docs from the “Google Classroom” link on the left side of the menu.


I hope this page will serve as a useful tool in helping your student be successful. Here are some items you may find useful.  

* HOMEWORK - Homework on most days will be to review concepts and knowledge learned in class. This should be done by students looking over graphic organizers and notes done each day. When there is a written assignment or an upcoming assessment, these items will be posted here. Those due dates/assessment dates may be found in the "Class Calendar".
