Welcome! I'm Jess Connors, and I'm excited to be entering into my 8th year of teaching at FHS. In addition to teaching English 12 Academic, I'm also the Junior Class Sponsor, which means I have the honor of leading our class officers as they plan our 5th Annual Charity Prom! I serve as the emcee for Freedom events including awards ceremonies and graduation, and I'm proud to represent LCPS as a the VA teacher Digital Promise.
In addition to teaching at FHS, I am an active member of the South Riding community, volunteering with the South Riding Stingrays swim team and leading fitness classes for Kelly's Bootcamp and INergy. I'm also the proud parent of an FHS graduate and a 7th grade student at Lunsford Middle.This year, my classes are split between rooms 602 (blocks 1, 3, & 6) and 611 (blocks 7 & 8). I hold office hours in the office in room 307 during blocks 2 and 5 and Monday - Thursday from 8:30 - 9:00 a.m.My e-mail address is firstname.lastname@example.org; this is the best way for students and parents to reach me.If a student is out of the classroom, it's important to check Google Classroom in order to stay current with activities, assignments, and due dates.The following link provides information on the Common Sense Media policieshttps://www.commonsensemedia.org/It's going to be a fantastic year, and I'm looking forward sharing it with the students at FHS!
