Hola y Bienvenidos - Hi and Welcome
My name is Mrs. Sievers and I have been teaching for 23 years, most at Power Schools. I teach 6-7th grade English, JH and HS Spanish, and JH and HS Art. My teaching philosophy is a combination of demanding diligence, excellence, and discipline with ceativity. I also believe in the partnership between myself and parents. I have been encouraged so much by parent volunteers. There are many opportunities to serve, especially in the Art department for shows. Check out the great student art I have posted, and feel free to contact me with any questions (463-2251 ex 227). My email is firstname.lastname@example.org. I used to put my lesson plans on this site, but please look for them on Infinite Campus now. Here you can see assignments and grades instantly. If you do not know your sign in or password, please call the office, and they will set you up. You can even download an app on your phone! I'll leave you with a taste of my corny sense of humor.

Al and Joe are bungee-jumping one day.
Al says to Joe, "You know, we could make a lot of money running our own bungee jumping service in Mexico."
Joe thinks this is a great idea, so they pool their money and buy everything they'll need: a tower, and elastic cord, insurance, etc . . . They travel to Mexico and begin to set up on the square. As they are constructing the tower, a crowd begins to assemble. Slowly, more and more people gather to watch them work. When they were finished, there was such a crowd they thought it would be a good idea to give a demonstration. . .
Al decides he would be the first to jump and he jumps. He bounces at the end of the cord, but when he comes back up, Joe notices that Al has a few cuts and scratches. Unfortunately, Joe isn't able to catch him, and he falls again, bounces again and comes back up again.
This time he is bruised and bleeding. Again Joe misses him. Al falls again and bounces back up. This time he comes back pretty messed up. he's got a couple of broken bones and is almost unconcious. Luckily, Joe catches him this time and says, "What happened? Was the cord too long?"
Barely able to speak, Al gasps, "No, the bungee cord was fine. It was the crowd. WHAT IN THE WORLD IS A PINATA?
