Beginning Monday, August 17, students must check in to their assigned Google Classroom each school day for attendance. For the first day of school on Monday, August 17, be sure to "check-in" by 2 p.m., so we can be sure you are enrolled. On all other school days, I recommend checking in for attendance by 10:30 a.m. The "check-in" will be a question to respond to and submit. Be sure to check out a Chromebook at the RFHS main office, if you need one.
Students' most asked questions have included where I went to school and some of my interests.
My childhood hobbies were playing sports, such as little league baseball, cheerleading, twirling, volleyball, track, and tennis. Writing poetry, playing saxophone, or reading was and remains enjoyable. Today I still play tennis and write poetry, songs, and news stories. I've supported the American Cancer Society Relay For Life, United States Tennis Association, and was a charter member of the Charles M. Schulz museum. Working full-time on media relations, event planning, and economic development projects is wonderful. Yet, as I began to raise my own family, switching to full-time education and part-time public relations interests worked out great.
After helping to teach classes and volunteer at Texas State University, Dallas I.S.D., and Refugio I.S.D., I decided to move to the Rockport-Fulton community and teach full time at Aransas County I.S.D., where I have taught since 2007. With a background in Mass Communications, Economic Development, and Event Planning, helping students learn about managing their time for studies and extra-curricular activities is a natural part of my wanting students to succeed.

School Supplies List
CLASS SUPPLIES 2020-21
1) We will use a Chromebook or other laptop for virtual learning.
2) Have a pencil in class each day we complete written assignments.
3) Each student is encouraged to use a pocket folder with brads or a 1-inch, three-ring binder for class. Being organized and having study guides to use as a reference will help students be successful in their Spanish 2 course.
Reminders for classroom learning
Students are expected to put away electronic devices during class unless permission is asked and given for academic use. This helps students stay on task and keep from being disruptive during lessons.

Google Classroom: hg4gew2
The RFHS Spanish Club is a social club for members to share interests, build leadership and social skills, and plan as well as participate in events together. Members do not have to be Spanish class students.
During the 2020-21 school year the Spanish Club will continue with an after school Club de Español hosted by the ACISD ACE Program. Club members and officers will have the opportunity to plan meetings and activities in a virtual clubhouse and face-to-face when possible. The Google Classroom code or the RFHS Spanish Club is: hg4gew2
Last year the Spanish Club donated new plush toys to the annual Teddy Bear Bike Ride gathered during a plush toy drive at a movie night and lock-in hosted for RFHS students. Plush toys were donated to riders to take by police escort from the Bay Area Bicycles to Driscoll Children's Hospital in Corpus Christi. Members hosted a Día de los Muertos face painting and photo booth. The club participated in Homecoming activities. Members also designed a club t-shirt and planned social events such as their own Fiesta de Navidad. As part of their community service efforts, members served as ambassadors and volunteers at the Labor Day Music Festival weekend event, with a featured Fiesta en La Playa celebration for the community. They were also invited to participate in the Hispanic Heritage display exhibited at The History Center of Aransas County. Some members joined in Pirate Spirit to cheer on the basketball team during the playoffs.
NOTE: Spanish Club information is shared during daily school announcements and among club members. Sign up in RFHS Classroom 225.
