  • Alert:

    As we all know, due to the Coronavirus outbreak, all travel has been severely restricted and non-essential businesses have been closed.  This means that Spring Break plans for almost everyone has been canceled.

    With this in mind, we are amending the school calendar for next week and these days will now be school days.  Due to this change, the last day of school for Estill County will now be May 14th

    This change will allow us to keep our students on a routine that will ensure a continuation of instruction and other services.  All staff will still be available for our families and food service will continue to serve breakfast and lunch.  For any family that still has plans for this coming week, your student can complete their work at your discretion.

    We will have further information tomorrow concerning the distribution on new NTI packets for days 11 – 20 as well as the return of work completed during the past 10 days.

  • Alert:

    As a reminder, ALL Estill County athletic facilities are now closed to the general public.

    Also, with the school closures, the KHSAA has suspended all spring sports and declared a dead period ending on April 19, 2020, at midnight.

I received my bachelor's degree in History Teaching and Masters Degree in Middle School ELA from Eastern Kentucky University.  I have previously taught at Model Laboratory School and Estill Success Academy.  I am super excited to be teaching Social Studies at Estill County Middle School this year!

My philosophy of education is to invite students to direct their own learning experience.  I think as teachers we must show them that they can achieve a measure of independence and motivation that will carry them beyond the classroom.  The primary role of an educator is not only subject matter, but providing them with the tools they need and the necessary instruction to use those tools. We must give students the chance to discover the joys and excitement of learning as a personal goal, rather than a dictated one; this is what will make them successful.
