Welcome to my class webpage. I am looking forward to working with all of you this year. 

This is my 5th year at Vidalia High School, after a short hiatus last year, and my 11th year teaching. I have worked in two other parishes in Louisiana (Tangipahoa and Ascension), in Alabama, at an online educational company, and worked as a consultant with the state of Louisiana Department of Education.  Outside of school, I am a wife (married to my husband of 21 years, Tim Smith who teaches and coaches at VJH) and a mom to 4 wonderful children (my daughter Katie, a VHS Alumni c/o 2016, and 3 sons, Patrick, Philip, and Timothy who all attend VHS). 
 
This year I am teaching English II and Fine Arts Survey.On each class page you will find class notes, handouts, and plans for each week, as well as due dates and test information. For information on your class, click on the appropriate link. Notes and other information will be uploaded regularly. 
 
Please don't forget to sign up for Remind to get text reminders about events happening in class and around the school!

Unit 2 and First Essay

We have had a busy couple of weeks working on rough drafts and our final essay. Due to some issues with the internet connections I have extended the deadline for the Persuasive Essay to Monday, October 23rd. All submissions are done digitally. We have been using Google Drive and students today should have received an email inviting them to join my Google Classroom where we will be able to take quizzes, have discussions about the novels we read, and send their assignments to be graded. Report cards will be issued tomorrow and I would love to meet with as many parents and guardians as possible. Please plan to stop by my room and see me. Students will get points if they have someone stop in and talk to me about what is coming up this 9 weeks! Happy Balloon Race Weekend. It is a great time to be a Viking :)

English 2 Unit 1 Test and Essay Updates

Today, 9/28 we started the Unit 2 test, students will finish this tomorrow, Friday, 9/29. Unit tests are formatted to mimic what they will see on the EOC/LEAP 2025 test this year, so they are very in-depth. Because of this, students are given additional time as well as a day of review before the test. 
 
Next week, 10/2 we will start our Rhetorical Essay. A rubric for this will be posted Monday afternoon following our class discussions. Any student needing additional help are encouraged to come after school for assistance. I am here Tuesday 3:30-4 pm and Wednesday 3-4 pm for tutoring. I do request students sign up if they plan on staying so I can plan accordingly.
 
~~~~~Anyone who missed the test in class needs to schedule their make-up exam. This can be scheduled for the Wednesday after school. After 1 week, tests become essay exams so that we can go over the test as a class. Parents and Students are responsible for having transportation arranged on make-up and tutoring days.
