We will be having a Zoom conference call tomorrow at 1:00 p.m.  If you need the details on the call please email me at or sign up for Remind and message me.  If you need to know how to sign up for Remind, please read below.




For the next few months, we are all facing this uncertain time together.  Distance learning is going to become our new normal.  The school district will be using the Canvas learning platform as our go-to for online learning.  Soon teachers will have their Canvas pages set up, but until then we must remain patient.  Teachers, students, and parents will all be receiving training on how to use the Canvas platform. 

For now I would encourage you to go to the links to the left for information.  If you have not signed up for Remind, I would encourage you to click on that link on the left side of this page.  Remind and email - are the best ways to get ahold of me.  

If you need information on the ABC Book, please clink on that link on the left side of this page.  At this point the ABC Book for most of you will be turned in digitally.  I will give more information on how to do that as the due date approaches.  If you cannot turn in your book digitally, please contact me and we will make arrangements.




This is my 23rd year as a Jacobsen Bulldog.  I am an alum of the University of Redlands where I majored in History and minored in Political Science. After college I attended CSU Bakersfield where I received my Single Subject Social Sciences Credential.  I taught for two years out at Edwards Air Force Base before coming to JJHS (now JMS).

I am a member of the 8th grade team - The Investigators.
