Thanks for visiting my webpage.  This is my third year at ACES, and I love -- and now miss -- the small-school environment and our students.  I previously taught a variety of English classes -- from AP English to creative writing -- at Mariner (16 years), Bigfork High School (6 years),  Phoenix Alternative School (2 years), and Vintage High School (3 years).  When I am not trying to figure out this technology and working with students, I am gardening, cooking, traveling, or playing the harp or guitar.  I grew up in Phoenix Arizona but have lived in San Francisco, Napa, Bigfork, and now Everett.

Few of us would choose on-line learning for our education, but I am determined to make the best of it and will continue to do what I can to improve our students' learning experiences.

My goal is to help students learn the skills they need to graduate and to  continue to succeed after graduation.  My main concern is the well-being of our students and families, and I believe continuing our education is a healthy way for us to move forward.  

Please email me ( any time you have questions or concerns.

Let's be patient with each other as we do our best.  --Ms. McPherson
