6 & 7 English

6-12 ESL

Welcome to our classroom! I am very excited to be part of the team at Stewartville Middle School.

I am a 2013 graduate from Stewartville High School and I graduated from the College of Saint Benedict in 2017. I have a major in Elementary Education with an endorsement in Communication Arts and Literature and a minor in Teaching English as a Second Language.

This year at Stewartville I will be teaching 6th and 7th grade English. I will also be teaching the 6th-12th grade Language Learners in our middle school and high school.

In English classes we will be spending time expressing ourselves through writing and speaking. We will also be reading many different types of texts. We will be exploring short stories, poetry, fiction and non-fiction. Research has shown that the best way to become a better reader and writer is to read and write so plan on doing just that - READING and WRITING!!

During my EL pull out instruction, we will be working on level appropriate skills to develop language in the areas of speaking, listening, reading and writing.

My goal is to inspire students to express themselves through speaking and writing and to grow through reading and listening.
