Mrs. Michelle Acosta
Hi I am your 8th grade English teacher Mrs. Acosta. I enjoy reading, art, and animals- especially my labradoodle named Puck. For fun I like to go camping, create art, and find stuff that makes me laugh. I am really excited to be your teacher this year and get to know you!
This year we will learn how to write expository and argumentative essays, debate, and present while having fun through self-expression. We will explore authors such as Anne Frank, Edgar Allan Poe, and many others. We will read two novels as well. You will use close reading strategies to explore texts and collaborate in circle groups all year long so that you can dig as deep as you can into what we are learning.
I have tutoring in case you want extra one-on-one time for concepts you need more help with.
Tutoring is Monday-Thursday from 3:45-4:30 per student request.
