My last name is pronounced O-mel-E-an-chuck. Before we meet many years ago, my husband thought no one would ever want to marry him due to his crazy last name.
I like watching sports, reading when I have time and watching tv/movies when I'm not running around with my five year old son. I love Mexican food, the dollar section at Target, corny jokes, and coffee. Everyone in this area has their favorite Mexican restaurant. Casa Mexicana is mine. The others just don’t compare. ;-) Have you tried their salsa? It’s the best. Lol.
I attended the University of Memphis and majored in psychology. I love the Tigers and hope to see a Final Four appearance in the next few years for the basketball team!
This is my third year teaching science at DCMS, but I have been at the school for over twelve years. In the past, I taught U.S. History, which I loved, but most of my time at DCMS was spent in the special education department as a teacher and a behavior technician. I worked at several schools when I was a behavior tech, but I knew that I wanted to be a part of the DCMS team after I became a certified teacher in 2009. I'm proud to be a Jaguar, and I try to promote that pride within the school.
The best way to contact me is at the contact link above. The number for DCMS is 662-349-6660. You can leave a message and I will return the call at my earliest convenience (within 24 hours). My email address is firstname.lastname@example.org
When I contact you, I will use a system called SchoolStatus. The calls or texts will not come from my personal phone number. It is a system that we use to document calls and messages. I have been told that the number may be from Brandon, MS, so that might be what city is displayed along with the phone number. If you get a call from that area, more than likely it is from our school.
I will also be utilizing a Remind 101 account to send home information about assessments and so forth. Please sign up and encourage your child to sign up as well. Text @science-20 to 81010. 81010 goes in the area where you put the phone number, @science-20 goes in the message box.
If you need Schoology Help, I have "office hours" using Zoom from 8:15 - 8:45 on Tuesdays. Any 7th grade science student or parent/guardian of that student can participate and ask questions. The information needed to log on is on the calendar in Schoology. Ms. Downs will have Zoom office hours on Thursdays at 2:00. (Check the Schoology calendar for more info.)
You need a binder or a section of a binder.
