Welcome to McCauley's Class!

Hello :)

Ms. McCauley here! *waves*

Welcome to the Homepage of the Google Site where you can find all the info for any of my English classes.

Along the top of this site you'll find individual pages for the specific classes I teach. I hope to use this site as a resource for assignment instructions, due dates, handouts, power points, daily class updates, etc. I will update it frequently, but please note that this is not a place for students to submit assignments -- that will be done via Google Classroom. I chose to use Google Sites AS WELL as Google Classroom so that parents can find and view assignment information without needing a code or having to join any groups. It's easy to access, easy to find information, and easy to track what's due when.

A little bit about me...

I was born and raised in Salem, Oregon, graduated in 2016 from Brigham Young University-Idaho with a degree in English Education, and began teaching part time at Fremont last year. I'm new to this area, but am already IN LOVE WITH IT! Driving to work alongside the beauty of the mountains and farmland is pure bliss, and I find the people to be honest, warmhearted, and kind.

I became an English teacher because I love working with teenagers, who I find to be hilarious and brilliant :) I teach English because I love stories and believe that the ability to successfully communicate is one of the most valuable skills in the world today.

Outside of teaching English, I love to read (obviously), hike in your beautiful National Parks, and enjoy the snow (which we don't get in Oregon). I miss the beach often, and feel a little land locked here, but driving to work as the sun rises over the snow peaked mountains MORE than makes up for it!

In conclusion...

I love the kids here at Fremont, and can't wait to dig into the curriculum with gusto! Whether it's annotating an Article of the Week, exploring what's going on in the world, or creating poetry to express powerful emotions -- I can't wait!

Please contact me if you have issues accessing information, wish to receive Guardian Emails from Google Classroom (parents), or have any additional questions! My email is mamccauley@wsd.net. Thanks for reading, and I wish you happy exploration of this site!
