    Welcome to English! Our goal for the year is to learn to read and think as writers, to look at texts through a writer’s eye. We will be reading and writing poetry, narratives, informational, and argumentative texts. You will have the opportunity to read engaging, thought-provoking texts and novels you won’t want to put down.  By examining these

    exemplary texts, you will build your skills as a writer and be able to communicate your ideas effectively.  We will also spend time building your vocabulary and technology skills. Discussion, both speaking and listening, as well as working in collaboration with others will play a large role in class and help to prepare you for the college and career world.  I look forward to spending the year learning with you!

    We use Remind to communicate with parents; Select your grade's class page, then use the link. Remind invites (paper) will be sent home the first week of school with each student.  
         I look forward to meeting and working with each of you. Here’s to a wonderful year!
