General Course Information: 
I teach reading for 6th, 7th, and 8th grade students. In this course, students can expect to spend time practicing reading, text analysis, reading comprehension, writing, and working with our computer-based reading program: Achieve 3000.

Students will need to bring a composition book, a free reading book, and a pen or pencil to class every day. 

About me:
Just because I'm a reading teacher doesn't mean I always enjoy reading. Reading isn't always fun, but it is always beneficial. As with any skill, reading must be practiced, and practice isn't always fun. In this course, we have the opportunity to practice becoming better readers so that reading will become more fun in the future. 

I spend time every day practicing reading. I also practice writing, bicycling, and cooking.
