YEAR END REFLECTIONS!
As much as I love words, I fear they'll fall short in capturing all that I feel when I consider this first full year of my return to the classroom. These remarkable kids stood alongside me and participated with me in Poe Tableaux, ridiculous debates, Shakespeare performances, and meaningful class discussions. They wrote and re-wrote, spoke and listened, read and reflected -- and they are ready for all that comes next.
Enjoy just a handful of moments that I managed to capture throughout the year: ELA 2019-2020
If you missed the email, here's a quick update on what to expect from ELA in the next couple of weeks!
- By 9am, every Monday, Tuesday, and Thursday, an activity will be posted on Google Classroom. All of the activities are based on skills that students have been working on since September.
- IXL is a great resource! The students should have received an email with a user name and password. Once they log in to the site, several activities are starred for Language Arts. Students can track their progress and then master important skills.
- Remember, all of the work will be beneficial for the students as they continue working toward High School level reading and writing.
- Finally, if students are interested in writing, composing, or sketching/drawing their reflections on the current state of our world, please encourage them to share it with me. I am already compiling student work that captures all we're experiencing from a student perspective.
As always, reach out with any questions or concerns! I'll be checking my email regularly.
Blessings to you all as you seek to stay healthy and sane in the days ahead,

Welcome to a new year with a new schedule and a kinda-new teacher! (I actually taught 8th grade right here at KPMS as a long term sub in Spring 2017!) Before then, for over 15 years and in 3 different states, I taught both middle and high school level English classes. I am thrilled to be back in the classroom fulltime and am ready for a year of creativity, conversation, insight, and discovery!
When I'm not in the classroom, I'm likely reading a book, eating popcorn, sitting around a fire, or trying to keep up with the four young ladies who call me mom.
Don't hesitate to reach out via email as questions or concerns arise. Students are also encouraged to make appointments as needed for extra help.
Each class has its own Google Classroom page, which will be kept up to date with notes, assignments & reminders. Be sure to check it out!
