Welcome to 6th Grade English Language Arts!

Hello! My name is Paul Morkner and I'm excited to be your 6th Grade English Language Arts teacher! I grew up in the San Francisco Bay Area and later attended the University of Hawaii at Manoa where I received a Bachelors degree in history. I teach ELA because reading and writing has always been dear to my heart. The skills brought out through Language Arts are not only an essential component of academics but a lens through which to view our lives and the world. The biggest part of my classroom experience involves thinking critically about texts, writing consciously about the subject at hand, and telling our unique and different truths. It is my opinion that we ALL carry invaluable perspectives and life experiences.
"The secret of education lies in respecting the pupil"- Ralph Waldo Emerson
