Welcome to the 2018-2019 School Year! I am honored and excited to serve as your principal for Pojoaque Valley Middle School this year. I began my teaching career at Pojoaque Valley High School where I taught for thirteen years and later served as principal at our Sixth Grade Academy.  As a proud graduate of Pojoaque Valley Schools, I am committed to working collaboratively with our community of learners to ensure that all students have the opportunity to reach their full academic and social potential while demonstrating pride in their efforts. I sincerely look forward to working with our students, staff, and families to provide the support and guidance necessary to make sure that our students are prepared to enter high school where they will continue to achieve greatness in preparation for college, their chosen career, and beyond.

There is a new Reading initiative between the 7th and 8th Grade English Department and the company, Reading Plus. This program will be part of our Response to Intervention (RTI) goals to help our scholars improve reading fluency, stamina, and comprehension.  Please take a moment to review the information provided here to become more acquainted with this powerful tool designed to meet each individual’s scholar’s reading needs and interests.

Program Overview

In addition, your scholar can access this website at home and continue to proceed through their individualized reading program. The more they do, the more improvements will be seen. Most scholars have completed the initial Insight assessment, and this information is available to you online.  Please have your scholar log on at the following address, and select students. Their password is their Student ID number and their password is their last name.

This is a great resource that we have been using in the classroom once a week. I am encouraging students to use this at home also. There is an app they can download for their smartphone which makes it more accessible. They each have their username and password so they can log in.  As they log on and complete lessons this will count towards their class grade. I am also giving an award and a prize per 9 week grading period to the student with the most points and lessons passed.

Scholar  usernames and passwords are unique to the program, and have been handed out in card format. Students select an  avatar and are able to personalize it  as they progress. Teachers will be incorporating this activity into  Book Talk grades, so you will want to become familiar with this website as well.
