Welcome to 8th grade ELA!

Hello.  My name is Teresa Farrar.  This is my 22nd year teaching and my 5th year at LMS.   I am married and have two grown children.  When I am not working on ELA, you may find me working on BETA club activities or planning my next trip to visit my children who live in Jacksonville, Florida.  

8th grade ELA is a fast-paced class that covers reading informational, reading literary, writing, and language standards. You will have access to my Google Classroom which includes study materials and links to review tools.  You can also visit the links below to be best prepared for the 8th-grade standardized tests.

I am looking forward to having you in my class, and my goal is to create a learning environment that will best prepare you for high school.  We will build reading stamina, and gain literary, grammar, and writing skills.  We will also have fun while focusing on project-based learning. It is going to be a great year!

You may contact me at teresafarrar@lowndes.k12.ga.us.  This year my planning period is from 1:30-3:30.

Reading is to the mind what exercise is to the body.
