I use Google Classroom and PowerSchool for all of my courses. Lesson plans are posted on my teacher website and are constantly updated during the week. The taught curriculum follows the ELA Common Core Standards. My classroom procedures follow the Rock Hills Jr/Sr High Student Handbook. If you have any questions, I am available by email at jwalker@usd107.org.
