Welcome to Seventh Grade Language Arts!

I am looking forward to having a great 2013-2014 school year. This year we will be reading an assortment of literature and expressing ourselves in various forms of writing. I want all students to feel at home when they enter my classroom. I believe strongly in creating a classroom culture where every student feels respected and valued by their peers and teacher.  Students are more likely to be successful and reach their potential if they feel happy and safe.  I will do my best to create a classroom environment that is comfortable and academically challenging for every student.
I expect one thing from all of learners; that they always put forth their best effort. I will not accept a student giving up or saying, "I can't".  I want each student to feel that they can, and will, be successful in my class.  We will work together until each student feels confident in their ability to move forward.
