   ABOUT ME

I began my college career playing basketball at Schreiner University before transferring to Sam Houston State University to finish my degree. I majored in History with a minor in Secondary Education. I will also be coaching 8 th grade boys’ basketball and 7th grade boys’ soccer this year! 

I am very EXCITED for this school year, as this is my first year teaching in SBISD!

I hope to assimilate into the SBMS community and build relationships with staff, parents, and most importantly, the students!

WELCOME TO 8th GRADE U.S. HISTORY 1607-1877!!

Please check this website for the weekly lesson outline, test days, due dates for projects & reviews, current documents, and web links. Every Friday, I will  send out weekly emails to parents/guardians to keep them in the loop as to what is going on in my class! The daily activities in the Interactive Notebook are reflective: the more YOU put into it, the more YOU will get out of it! YOU WILL FAIL THIS COURSE WITHOUT YOUR INTERACTIVE NOTEBOOK!!! Have it with you every class day! If you lose it or misplace it, YOU NEED TO REPLACE IT AS SOON AS POSSIBLE. 95% of the course is completed inside of the Interactive Notebook so it’s important that you have one and keep up with it daily. I always outline my Interactive Notebook so if you fall behind, you can always look at mine :)

 2017-2018 Supply List for ALL 8th grade Social Studies Classes.  Ms. Schaper, Mrs. Wilhide, Mrs. Hudek, and Coach Johnson will expect students to bring supplies DAILY to Class:

  1. SBMS Planner
  2. Mead Composition Notebook for Interactive Student Notebook (9-3.4” X 7-1/2”) Wide Ruled ONLY (Bring TWO at the beginning of school) YOU will need ONE for the second semester!
  3. Map Pencils – at least 12 – sharpened, ready for class (NO Markers!)
  4. Notebook paper – wide rule or college ruled paper will be accepted.
  5. Blue and Black pens (only) – NO gel pens! (You will need BOTH colors!)
  6.  #2 pencils with erasers
  7. Small manual pencil sharpener that fits in pencil bag.
  8. Glue Sticks (5-8 each semester)
  9. Small Scissors  that will fit in pencil bag
  10. Red pen for grading and corrections
  11. 2 highlighters in various colors
  12. Binder/ Notebook with one Divider designated for U.S. History Divider
  13. 4 “Post-It” Notes in 2 sizes: 1-1/2” x 2” and 3” x 3” in various colors
  14. OUR ROOMS ARE ALWAYS COLD –Prepare for this in advance with proper clothing
  15. One box of Kleenex Tissues, 6 glue sticks, OR hand sanitizer! (Bring at the beginning of each semester for classroom sharing)

Other supplies MAY be needed throughout the year for projects, such as sharpies, posters, flash drives, etc.  Advance notice will be given before these supplies are needed.

All students should arrive to class on time and with their Interactive Notebook. If students are not seated in their ASSIGNED SEAT when the bell rings, they WILL be marked tardy. This year the current 8th grade textbook, Texas: United States History, will be expected to be brought to class every day.

All students are REQUIRED to write in their planner daily. There will always be something written for every Social Studies entry. STAY current with your planner! We do have regular Planner Quizzes every 9-weeks! Writing in your Planner DAILY will be the key to time management and therefore SUCCESS in History. Planners will also be used as restroom passes, so use them wisely!

The curriculum for this class is demanding and fast-paced. Please plan for and expect homework EVERY NIGHT and some weekends.  This could range from 15-45 minutes depending on the individual student's use of class time. If students use their class time wisely, then they should have no homework at all! The assessments are VERY challenging, we encourage students to study, study, study for them! They should not only study their test reviews, but any notes we have taken over that unit.
