    This is my first year teaching at Pilot Point! I went to UNT where I received a B.A. in Biology and an M.S. in Biochemistry and Molecular Biology. While working on my Master’s, I taught upper level biology labs at UNT for three years and discovered a passion for teaching. I’m now finishing up an M. Ed. in Teaching as well. I am really looking forward to teaching Anatomy and Physiology this year and I am especially excited about the opportunity to offer Dual Credit Biology. I love exploring science with students and I’m anticipating a great year!

    Grading:

    Exams and Projects: 60% Teachers are required to have at least 3 test/project grades each six weeks
    Homework and Quizzes: 40% Teachers are required to have at least 7 daily work grades each six weeks.  A quiz will count as two grades but only as one assignment.

     

    Late Work Policy:

    1 Day Late – 15 points subtracted from graded assignment
    2 Days Late – 30 points subtracted from graded assignment
    3 Days Late – student earns a zero

     

    Make-Up Policy:

    All students will have opportunity to make up work from an excused absence.  The student will have the same number of days missed plus one to make up for any missing work.  So, for example, if a student is absent for two days, they will have a total of three days to make up all missing assignments.
