I am Ms. Artis and teaching is an absolute passion of mine. I'm an alumna of Fayetteville State University, Lets go Broncos!! I am so excited to work with you and your child this year! This class will be full of fun educational virtual learning and I can't wait to see what the year has in store for us! In the mean time, I thought you might like to know a little bit about me...
 
This year will be my third year teaching at Thomasville Middle School. I believe that middle school is the most adventurous and exciting grades to teach as I have taught 6th, 7th and 8th grade science. 
 
All remote learning at Thomasville Middle School will be housed within the Learning Management System Canvas. Students can reach Canvas by using the link below and using your Student ID and Password.
 
 
The virtual learning schedule is as follows:

It is required that all students attend class and complete assignments daily on canvas. Canvas can be downloaded on your cellular device for easy access and also using this link to get to homebase and click on canvas to access class work. 
 
Science is my favorite and I want to show every child how to be the scientist they have inside of them. I look forward to meeting you and learning more about you this year!
