Tucker - 8th Grade ELA

 Class Overview

I am so excited about being your child's 8th grade ELA teacher this year! Grammar, reading, and writing are my passion and I am thrilled to share that with you.  My hope is for each of my students to grow as a reader and a writer this year.  I strive to support, encourage, and instill a love of learning in all of my students! 




Meet Ms. Tucker

Dear 8th Grade Parents,

I am so excited about being your child's 8th grade reading and English Language Arts teacher for the 2022-2023 school year! This will be my 7th year teaching ELA. I spent the last 6 years teaching 5th grade, but I am so excited about being back at the middle school level, where my heart is! 

In December of 2016, I graduated from Valdosta State University with a Bachelor's degree in Middle Grades Education. In December of 2018, I graduated with a Master's in Education degree in Curriculum and Instruction.  Originally, I am from a small town west of the Atlanta area.  I moved to Valdosta to attend VSU and fell in love with the area.  I have two daughters, Kaylee and Ella

The main focus in my classroom is to ensure your child’s success, not just in my class, but in all his or her endeavors.  I will strive to ensure your child learns in a productive, safe, and caring environment.  I believe all students are unique and learn in different ways, and my goal is to ensure all of my students are successful.  I am looking forward to a happy and productive school year!
