    Welcome to 6th Grade reading and writing for English Language Arts (ELA)!

    My name is Libby Hammond.  I started teaching in 2000, after graduating from Brigham Young University in Utah.  I taught until my second child was born, choosing at that time to stay home as a full-time mom.  When my youngest child (#5!) entered kindergarden at Desert Sage, I began substituting at the school.  I loved the school and enjoyed being back in the classroom so much that I decided to go back to teaching.  I love being at Desert Sage and I feel fortunate each day when I walk through the door to teach such amazing students!  I'm looking forward to a great year in 6th Grade!!  


    This year, we will be using the Collections textbook/student ebook.

    During Virtual Learning, the student text is embedded within the lesson.

    Log in to the portal (Links to an external site.) then locate/click on the "HMH Curriculum Resources" icon/tile.
