Ms. Smith's 8th Grade ELA
Welcome to 8th grade ELA! My name is Emily Smith, and this is my first year at Pine Grove Middle. I am so excited for the year to come!
I was born and raised in Valdosta, GA and have been a Viking my whole life! I was also a member of the Georgia Bridgemen.
Unit 1: Psychology of Identity and Fear
Reading focus: Informational
Writing focus: Argumentative
- What makes you who you are?
- How can fear be used to manipulate?

Text: Witness by Karen Hesse
I graduated from the University of Georgia with a bachelor's degree in Middle Grades Education with a focus on English Language Arts and Social Studies. Go Dawgs!
I love movies and music, going to Disney World, watching the Dawgs play, and spending time with my friends and family!
