    Overview

    Welcome to our classroom! It is my goal for every student to be able to communicate effectively in their school, community and personal life. To form the core of language and literacy we will be working on the communication skills of reading, writing, listening, speaking, viewing and presenting. Our courses focus on reading and writing through the means of personal investigation, examining various writing styles, and analysis of texts and authors.  Classes are writing and reading intensive in order to advance each student’s skills. We will be reading from a variety of genres, which will allow us to look at different types of writing. The year will require students to do a higher level of thinking than ever before and I am excited to see everyone succeed.  Please contact me with any questions or concerns.

    Parents and Guardians, 

    Since I am not physically on my campus to get phone calls and messages right now, please use email if you have any questions or concerns.  You will hear a response within 24 hours during normal school hours, or the next business day if it is on the weekend.  Students should use the Canvas message center for all communications. I look forward to working with you this semester!
