Dr. Dockstader
Welcome to 7th grade!  I am Dr. Jolene Dockstader.  I love to teach language arts.  I have a doctoral degree from Boise State University and am a National Board Certified Teacher.  My favorite thing to do is to read with my pug, Annie, sitting on my lap.  I love to write in my journal as well.  I believe that writing is one of the most important skills people can learn and research has shown that most jobs that pay well require a skill in writing.  People learn to write by writing. The more people write, the easier it gets and the more they are motivated to do it. Writers who write a lot learn more about the process because they have had more experience. In the seventh-grade language arts class, we write extensively in journals, in composing essays, and in writing poetry.
