Welcome to 7th grade Language Arts! This year we will grow together as readers and writers through the workshop model and extensive practice. First quarter we are going to work on narrative writing through an exciting historical fiction project including book clubs. We're going to tackle various types of nonfiction second quarter, and then use that learning to develop research based arguments third quarter. Fourth quarter is all things poetry! Please feel free to email me or set up a conference if you want to know more about what is happening in the classroom.
On a more personal note, this is my 15th year teaching. I love what I do and can't imagine my life without teaching. I have a Master's in Education with a concentration in Curriculum and Instruction. I taught for 7 years in south Georgia before moving to Chattanooga and continuing my career here. I have a wonderful husband, Billy, and two small children, Timmy and Eliana. Thank you for sharing your children with me, and I look forward to working with you this year!
