Welcome to Class!

Each day is a journey, each minute a lesson, and each moment an opportunity. School is a place where students must be challenged, and must have the opportunity to take risks and try new things.  The only way that my students are going to be comfortable pushing their limits it to have a classroom that acts as a community. 

It will take a lot of hard work and dedication to understand the complex texts and ideas that we will discuss this year.  That is why it is important that everyone be a part of the classroom and they take part of the learning process.  This website will be a great way for you to know what we are doing in class, what we are reading, and where the class is going. 

I welcome comments or questions from parents.  You can find my contact information here. Each class will be reading a few select titles and those lists can be found on each course's page. I will also have information about what was completed in class and any practice that should be completed on the calendar found on each course page.


We are a community, we are a class, and we are all here to learn from each other.  I look forward to working with all of my students and their parents over the upcoming year.
