I am glad to be teaching in the IB program at Paisley. The 2015-16 school year will be my 8th year at Paisley and every year I have been teaching Year I students. I am married and the mother of four children. Our oldest son graduated from East Carolina University in May 2014 and is a High School English teacher in August 2014 . Our second son is a junior at North Carolina State University and is studying to be a Chemical Engineer. Our daughters both attend Paisley and are Year IV and Year V students.

Missed/late work policy reminder:
A reminder to students and parents about making up work when absent: as stated in the student agenda, students will be given one day's extension for each day's excused absence to turn in work. For example, if a student had an assignment due on Tuesday, but missed Tuesday, the assignment would be due upon the student's return. If there is a new assignment given on the day the student is absent, the student will be given one extra day to complete the assignment. Extended absences (3 or more days) will be handled on an individual basis. Students who miss an extended period should plan to stay for each teacher's tutoring session to help understand the missed work.
In regards to missing assignments (0) on any progress report, students MUST have missing work turned in by the Monday following the progress report. There will be no extensions.
