Degrees and Certifications:
Hi there! And welcome to another fantastic school year!
I'm excited to be teaching seventh grade Language Arts again this year. I expect that this year will be challenging but also rewarding and fun. I plan for an interesting year of reading, writing, speaking, listening, and LEARNING. Throughout the year we will read selections in several genres including short stories, nonfiction, drama, myths, poetry, and novels. We will also work in a Buckle Down workbook to help with close and careful reading skills. In addiition, we will write (a lot) focusing mostly on Text Dependent Anaysis (or TDA's). This skill will help us with the 7th grade ELA PSSA administered in April (and will help with our writing skills in general as well). We will also build our grammar skills (including on-line Khan Academy assignments), and work with in-class Collins Writing assignments. If you miss anything, all assignments will be listed on Google Classroom.
I can't wait!! How about you? :)
Feel free to contact me with any questions. I can be reached at the school at (570)945-5181. You can also email me at firstname.lastname@example.org to ask for the Google Classroom information.
Here's to a great year!
