2020-2021 Hybrid Learning


This website is not being used this school year, as long as we are utilizing Schoology, but feel free to browse through and see what previous classes have done! I am a 100% hybrid teacher this year, meaning all of my class periods are blended with face-to-face learners and e-learners.

Assignment descriptions, deadlines, zoom call info, class announcements, and submission pages will be located in Schoology from now on.

See below for a photo of schoology access directions:

Google Classroom Codes

Hello students!  I miss each of you and hope everyone is staying healthy.  Official remote instruction begins Thursday, April 2nd.  Please read/complete the task below before then.

We are going to be using Google Classroom to turn in assignments/track attendance. (YOU HAVE TO USE YOUR SCHOOL EMAIL WHEN LOGGING IN!)

You must join the google classroom course or you will be marked absent for my course each day until doing so.

See the joining instructions & class codes below:


Join a class with a class code

  1. At the top, click Add Add and then Join class.Click Join class
  2. Enter the class code your teacher gave you (photo class’s are below) and click Join.
    A class code consists of 6 or 7 letters or numbers. For example, hjhmgrk or g5gdp1.Enter class code

All Classes: Moving Forward

Hello Students, I miss you all and I hope you’re all hanging in there!  My classes will be moving to Google Classroom for future assignments/virtual instruction.  Many of your teachers already use it, thankfully!

VIRTUAL INSTRUCTION ATTENDANCE:  For my course, you will need to log in to Google Classroom each weekday to mark yourself “present” for the sake of attendance.  I will post the directions on how to join our class/the class code here in the coming days.


CP1/CP2/CP3:  I will not require Photoshop edits for photographs but will offer optional Photoshop directions on this website for those of you that enjoy using it/have access to Adobe.  We would also rely off of phone photography or any cameras you have at home.



See the attachment below for instructions on how to access/download Photoshop to your home computers or laptops:

Accessing Photoshop at Home

**  TIP:  The Photoshop download will go much quicker if done on a desktop computer (like the ones we have at school), and NOT a laptop.  Laptops will work fine but they take longer because wifi connections are generally slower/weaker.

Congratulations – again!

The following LHS Photography students had work accepted into Polk Museum of Art’s “Our Finest Competition & Exhibition”:

Katie Hoppe

Jorge Miranda-Papaleo

Von’Tasia Wiggins

Brianna Wunsch


Because of the events around the Covid-19, the gallery reception for “Our Finest: Polk County High School Fine Art Competition” has been cancelled.

The museum’s primary concern is to keep everyone as safe as possible.  The school board is working with the Museum on a plan to honor the students whose work is in the show and those that have won awards.  You will be contacted when we have more detailed information.


I am very proud to extend the most deserving of congratulations to the following students for being accepted into the following art exhibitions:
