It's Fall Y'all!!!
Welcome students and parents! I am eager and excited to share this exciting academic journey with you. I believe it will take an equal partnership to make this a fun, successful and rewarding year. Our goal is to grow in knowledge and preparedness for high school, college, a career and beyond! To do that, we will need to practice, build and strengthen our mastery of English Language Arts. In this course, we will focus on reading, writing, grammar, vocabulary, critical thinking and listening/speaking skills. Now that you have had a year to adjust to Middle School, it will become more expected of you to work more independently, as well as focus on organizing your time and schedule. My class is challenging, but I will be supportive every step of the way. If you promise to try your best, then I can promise you will succeed! I want to create an environment where learning is enjoyable, success is achieved and attainable, and failure is not an option. This year is filled with projects and activities that will boost your critical thinking habits, improve your collaborative participation, grow your creativity and develop your reading, writing and communication skills. Teaching has always been a passion of mine and I am excited to share what I know with all of you, and hopefully learn something from each of you too. I am excited and I hope you are too!
