My Students

After having taught for twenty-five years in a large school district, I made the decision to come to the small town school where I had graduated in the 1980s. I hold a Bachelor of Science degree in Art, and am also certified in Language Arts, grammar and composition. I attended the ARRL Teacher Institute for Wireless Technology and Robotics where I received specialized training for this class. I also hold a Master of Biblical Studies and have always had a passion for teaching others in every aspect of my life.

I have always had a classroom with students with diverse backgrounds and abilities.

My World Communication classes learn about the world of science, technology, engineering and math in a way that helps the student apply the knowledge gleaned from core classes. Amateur or "ham" radio is a catalyst in my classroom. Seeing young people learn and pick up the hobby is encouraging and will help them to make their way into the workplace in our ever-changing marketplace.

My Project

In our classroom, we learn about world communications - wireless communication. We explore the opportunities available for communications through different venues. Our students are introduced to amateur radio and are given the opportunity to obtain their license through the Federal Communications Commission. In fact, we have our own amateur radio club - KF5CRF, the Tiger Radio Club. We compete in the semi-annual ARRL School Club Round Up where we were awarded first place in our category in the spring of 2016.

The lessons learned through this class touch on math, science, technology, geography and virtually every subject studied by students today.

Many scholarship opportunities are opened for students who have received their amateur radio licenses. These opportunities focus on the STEM areas taught in this class.
