Susan Coley

English 2, TSI English Prep, Campus Dyslexia Coordinator
This is my eighth year at Jacksboro High School. My husband Ralph and I live in Bryson on our family ranch. We raise Angus cattle and chickens, garden, rescue llamas, and battle wild hogs. 
My classroom is a mix of reading, writing, conversation, study hall, and building skills for success. I'm open to conversations about coursework, concerns, and high fives! I help with Class of 2024 activities and dues.
I am also the campus dyslexia coordinator. This means I help dyslexia students navigate Learning Ally, the audiobook program as well as be successful in their classes.

Study Hall Time
Students are welcome to come to my room from 7:30 until the first bell for study hall. You will need a pass from me. That time is not for roaming the halls. There is help with assignments, reading time or a chance to get ready for the day ahead.
Tools for Success
  • Expectations for success include a binder with a divider each class and a pouch for supplies. The school provides this and I will teach you to keep it organized.
  • Students need earbuds, that will fit in the pencil pouch, for listening to audiobooks and Chromebook videos.
  • Students will keep a list of passwords, a calendar and assignment sheets for all classes. We will learn to do it on paper and as a Chromebook app. This will be a weekly grade. My expectation is that students will know their access to Skyward to check their grades.
  • This is a reading and writing class, and we will read and write daily in class. If you are unprepared, there will be consequences. 
  • A plug-in mouse is a handy tool to use with the Chromebook.
  • Parents can access the Class of 2024 and Class of 2022 Facebook pages for information about class activities. This is a handy way to send group and individual reminders about Class doings. Parents can link into Google Classroom also to see assignments and grades listed there. 
Electronic Devices
Students will need a variety of apps to help with their classwork including a dictionary, a calendar, and a working Gmail email account that will be set up by the school. JISD is a Google district and all the apps we use in the classroom can be used across devices so students will be able to stay in touch at school, home, and during activities. Students will be expected to turn in assignments electronically through Google Classroom. Chromebooks will be charged overnight and will not be plugged in during class. An uncharged Chromebook will draw d-hall.
