Degrees and Certifications:
I have been a Mustang for 11 years! Prior to becoming part of the Mustang family, I taught math in the Charlotte area. I teach 6th Grade GATE Science and 6th Grade Grade Level Science. I have been married to my wonderful husband, Don for 24 years! We have two children, Sarah and Jonathan. Sarah is a Freelance Marketing Consultant and Jonathan is a Freshman at Ashley Ridge High School. We also have two dogs and three cats! In my free time, I like to go read and sew. I am also a Disney Fanatic!
This year my goal is to build strong relationships and to incorporate as much FUN as possible into a year of uncertainty. I am excited to be teaching Social Studies as well as Science this year. I will be teaching a section of Virtual Academy and am looking forward to using my technology skills during that time.
Please do NOT purchase any special supplies for class right now as we are so unsure of what is to come. You will need some paper, a pencil/pen and your school assigned laptop. There is a stylus that would be helpful, but it is not required. The stylus that is compatible with the school laptop is the Dell Active Pen PN350M
Welcome to 6th Grade! I am Mrs. Baus and I have been at GMS for over 10 years teaching GATE and Grade Level Science. This year, I will be teaching GATE Science and GATE Social Studies! I am so excited!
It will be a different year, but I am as prepared as I can be and excited to meet you all. During e-learning (emergency-learning), our class meetings will be held using Micrsoft Teams. We will start off the year learning how to navigate Teams as well as other applications we will use this year.
The BEST way to contact me is through email. My email address is firstname.lastname@example.org .
I do have a google voice account. I will use this during e-learning to help with any urgent matters. I can be reached during the hours of 7am and 7pm at 843-695-7419. I can receive both calls and texts to that number.
I will communicate with parents via email as well as through REMIND text alerts. I will post the codes to sign up for REMIND once my classes are finalized in PowerSchool.
We are in this together and we will have a wonderful year!
