Updates for Parents:

Please understand we are all very disappointed that we are missing valuable instructional time with your child due to the COVID-19 virus. However, we are working very hard to develop online and paper resources for students to continue the progress they have made. Until that information is available, I have some suggestions:

1st Block Learning Strategies lab: 

Students may log in to Classworks & Google Classroom (See Educational Links). For Classworks, your lunch number operates as the username and password. A message was sent with login information about Google Classroom, which can be accessed beginning 3/25 after 3:00 pm. Read silently for at least 20 minutes a day with the book of your choice.  

English Teacher Websites: 

Please go to the appropriate teacher's website to receive instruction. Teachers are sharing work with me concerning accommodations, such as read aloud. I am available by email or school status for any questions or concerns. We want to do everything we are able for the success of our students. 

Berkowitz 3rd Block

Ashley 3rd & 4th Blocks

Talley 4th Block

Garrigan 3rd Block

My Homeroom: IEP Case manager

With the constantly changing environment, more information will be given by MDE and our Central Services department, addressing any amendment to services, ESY, Re-evaluations (if applicable) and annual IEPs. I will contact parents when updates are given. Meetings will be hld virtually, by conference call or in-person using CDC guidelines to prevent infection. I look forward to scheduling those meetings!

Please email me or contact me through school status.

Be safe & be well!

I am very excited to be joining the Olive Branch High School Conquistadors team this school year! DeSoto County Schools is close to my heart, because my children graduated from the system and I am returning after 8 years of experience with the district. Prior to that, I have taught over 19 additional years in different areas of Special Education. I received my bachelor's degree in Special Education and an endorsement in Deaf Education from the University of Memphis. Later, I went back to school to receive my master's degree in Educational Leadership at Arkansas State University. I am currently seeking my specialist degree from Arkansas State University in Reading Literacy. I reside in the Olive Branch area with my husband and daughter. My two sons live in DeSoto County and have families of their own. I have two wonderful and curious grandsons. I enjoy spending time with family and friends. I love cycling, hiking, and swimming. I'm looking forward to working with my students and families!
School is closed tentatively until April 17, 2020
