  • FAQ

    Posted by Micah Nellums on 10/12/2018

    Below are some FAQ’s about 7C procedures:

    If you have any questions, please do not hesitate to email us. Email is the fastest, most efficient way to get in touch with us.  Phone messages may take much longer for us to retrieve.


    PS Connect (aka Gradespeed)

    This is a resource to check student grade updates. 

    Go to www.houstonisd.org and click on “Students & Parents” to access up-to-the-minute information about your student’s grades.  Please do not try to communicate with us via this system.  Again, email is the best way to reach us. 

    You may sign up for text alerts if you wish to get an SMS whenever a student’s grade changes.

    Absences and Make-up work


    Excuse notes go to Ms. Marquez in the main office.  The day students return to school, they should see the teachers whose classes they missed to get makeup work.  Students are NOT to wait to the following class period to get make-up work.  Students should get work missed the day they return to school even if they do not have that teacher’s class on the day they return.  Parents may arrange to pick up work for their child when they miss school by contacting the cluster leader, Ms. Coffman through email. All teachers will be contacted and documents can be put aside for a parent to pick up for the office or given to the student with instructions when they return.

    In the best interest of the child, please inform teachers and the attendance office of any planned absences so we can arrange to gather work before the absence occurs, so students do not fall behind. 


    Late Work

    All work turned in past the assigned due date will be subject to a 10% penalty.  Late work will not be accepted a week before report card goes home. Late work submitted within a week before progress report goes home may not reflect on the progress report. It will be included in the report card. Absenses do not count as late work, but students will be given a new due date for assignments. Absences after an assignment will not allow for an extension unless the student was absent on the due date. If this is the case, the due date is the day the student returns.

I am a graduate of West Virginia University. After a career in college student housing, I entered the teaching profession 13 years ago. Surprisingly, Science was not my favorite class growing up. Now, I LOVE Science! I really enjoy seeing students grow and explore their curiosities! When school is not in session, I spend my time READING, watching/playing sports, and spending as much time as possible traveling the country visiting our family and friends!

I earned my B.S. degree in Mathematics at Louisiana State University in 2010. I then went on to earn my M.S. degree in Mathematics at the University of Houston. I worked at for a seismic data company for 2 years as a processing geophysicist. I enjoyed my work but it was nothing compared to the joys of teaching I experienced as a teaching assistant at the University of Houston while earning my Master's degree. I chose to earn my Alternative Certification in Math 7-12 and since then I have been teaching!
