    ELA 7 and 8 


    "If you don't have the time to read, you don't have the time or tools to write.  Simple as that!"  Stephen King


    Welcome to ELA...

    Upon entering my classroom, students will begin a journey where they will discover new places, meet interesting and sometimes devious people, travel through time, and experience unfathomable situations. This exciting journey is the world of literature and writing, which will be the main components of our year together.

    Our goals in ELA 7 and 8 include making each student a better reader, writer, and critical thinker. Our curriculum is designed to meet the new Next Gen standards, as well as to prepare students for the rigors of high school.

    Homework, class work and important dates will be posted exclusively on each student's Google Classroom page.

     About Me...

    I have called Maryvale since 1994. In school, I work diligently to share my love of literature and writing with my students.
