Welcome to another fantastic year!
I am excited to have your student in my class this year and am looking forward to a year full of learning, growth, and development.
The goal for 8th grade English and English 1 is to continue to refine and expand skills in the areas of reading, writing, and communication in order for your student to achieve on the common core standards, as well as to prepare them for success on the SBA. The study of literary compositions, as well as informational text, will be the foundation for increased skills and knowledge in reading, writing, and communication.
I earned both my Bachelor's degree and Master's of Education from The University of Washington (go Huskies!) and am endorsed to teach English/language arts, social studies, and special education. In addition to teaching 8th grade English and English 1, I am also the yearbook advisor here at Evergreen.
As a parent of three children myself, I know firsthand the importance of communication with teachers to families. If you have any questions or concerns about your student, please do not hesitate to contact me.
