This year in Communication Arts, students will be learning how to think, read, and write critically as they gather information of all kinds.  We will be studying reading, writing of all styles, speaking, and listening.  My goal is for each student to leave this classroom as a lover of reading and writing, ready to take on the world as an effective communicator and critical consumer of information.  

Students will be expected to both read and write on a daily basis.  I meet students where they are at, encouraging each and every student to celebrate their strengths and pushing them to hone their skills further.  

Reading is my passion, one I hope to share with my students throughout the year and for years to come.
