Bio

Welcome to English Language Arts! I teach 8th grade ELA and 9th grade Honors English. Aside from teaching, I coach 7th grade volleyball.
 
I teach grammar, writing, and literature throughout the year and promote positive speaking and listening activities through student participation. Class discussion is an integral aspect of the learning process as well as vocabulary development.
 
It is my aspiration that the lives of students I teach will be enriched through literature selections and writing topics which provoke analytical and evaluative thinking. The goal is that all students will be life long learners and to utilize language skills throughout all areas of their college and career preparation.
