As we are well into African-American History Month I would like to take a minute to honor one of the most influential and substantive people in my life.  Carl Stone-Taylor was my mentor and lead teacher when I was a student-teacher. She was, at the time, teaching seniors American Literature at Frederick Douglass High School in Atlanta.  While I had a pretty good handle on the material, it was Ms. Stone-Taylor who taught me what it meant to teach. 
Ms. Stone-Taylor is a wonderful person, and thoughtful, thorough teacher, and a brilliant writer... and above all, she took pity on my early attempts at teaching.  She published Whispers: Poetry from My Soul in 2014.  Her words are reminders of the power of her leadership, instruction, and love.  Thank you, Ms. Stone-taylor. 
JMMS Girl's Soccer is here!

How to Login to Edgenuity?


Go to your school’s webpage. 

Go to the Student Tab on the webpage.

Scroll down to the Edgenuity Tab and click on.

This will pull up a blue login screen.


Student User Name is your pin number ONLY

Student Password is your 6 digit birthday. All passwords have been set back to birthdays.



User Name Pin# 12345

Password  010105


DO NOT use your school google email as your user name. It will NOT work. I know when you get to the blue login screen it shows an email address as an example but our school does NOT use that. We use pin numbers.





Please remember...we have around 65 students in each class and there is only 1 me. When you ask for help I may be working with another student. I will get to all of you one at a time.
ATTENTION STUDENTS: You MUST take notes while you watch the lectures. These notes will supply you the answers to the assignments and quizzes. 
ATTENTION STUDENTS: if you fail a quiz twice you need to contact me so I can unlock the quiz until you pass it. Also, you need to contact me when you reach a unit test to have it unlocked. All other assignments can be unlocked without me. Once you open these quizzes and unit tests you MUST complete them without leaving for ANY reason. If you leave they will lock and you will need to ask for another unlock. This is happening a lot so please complete these without trying to exit and save to do it later, it won't work.
ATTENTION STUDENTS CONCERNING PROJECTS: When you get to a project open the guide and read the questions. If you do not have word on your device type your answers on an email and send it to me to grade. This will save time trying to load a document.
ATTENTION PARENTS: You can check your child's progress at any time. Click under their name on "Progress Report". Look at their % complete. This is how much of the class they have completed up to now. Then look to the right side and look at their "Target Completion". This is where they SHOULD be in the class. If this number is higher than their % completion they are behind the difference.
Honor Code Procedure--you need to send me the honor code to access topic tests or unit tests ONLY. Here are the steps.
1. copy and paste the honor code statement below.
