Dear Students, I hope that you are well and taking good care of yourself and your family members! I will be sending your English assignments to you via email for the duration of the Covid-19 situation. You will need to access English assignments through Lohn ISD gmail accounts. If you have trouble getting the links or shared documents to open, please let me know. You can email me from your own personal account at I will be happy to send your assignments to an alternate email address. I just need to know what it is. Also, if you are talking with fellow classmates, be sure to let them know to check their school gmail accounts for work. Several of the teachers are using the email for class assignments. Thanks for being flexible and let me know what I can do to support you during this time! -- Mrs. Ruth Herrera


I recently moved to Melvin, Texas, from just outside of St Louis, Missouri.  I am married and have 3 children and 3 grandchildren.  I have 2 dogs.

I retired in June of 2018 from Fox Middle School where I served as counselor for 17 years.

My hobbies include sewing, crafts and painting.  I am adjusting nicely to country living!
