  • Have you ever?

    Posted by Deenna Burris on 7/21/2021

    Have you ever thought about traveling to another country or being involved in a different culture than your own? 

    Book are an amazing way to travel and discover things about yourself and others. When we learn more about other things, we can better understand both empathy and compassion for others.

  • The Boy in the Woods

    by Harlan Coben Year Published: 2020 Suspense/Thriller

    She was there and then she was gone. A girl who cries wolf still deserves to be noticed, right? The problem had always been she was noticed too often and not in the kindest of ways. Does someone care enough to look deeper?

  • This will be Mrs. D's 1st year with Thorpe Gordon and in 1st grade. I am excited to work in a grade level that builds the foundation for reading, writing, math, and learning. Teaching has been an amazing career for over 18 years and has allowed me experience in 2nd-12th grade. Reading is my passion and developing a love for reading with the students I serve is a priority. I believe in communication, trust, and a village-type connection for all of us as we work through the school year! If I do not have the answer, I will find someone who does. It is now time to get to learning!
