Welcome to 6th Grade English
I am excited for the 2019/2020 school year! This is my 4th year at Heritage Middle School and I absolutely love it. I started my career teaching elementary school in Arizona and when I came to Heritage Middle School, I found out how awesome it is to teach 6th graders. It is so rewarding to share my love of reading with my students and to watch students learn and grow. One of my favorite parts of teaching is to find ways make learning fun. My goal in reading is to help students find what genre of books are their favorites so that by the time they leave my class they know what books interest them. In writing, students in my class start the year writing about things they know so that they never run out of writing topics.
Some facts about me are:
1. I have lived in six states, including Idaho.
2. We've lived in Idaho for 14 years.
3. My husband and I have a fun-loving middle school daughter and a fluffy Cavachon (King Charles Spaniel mixed with Bichon).
4. I spent my summer reading books.
5. My favorite place to read is at the Oregon Coast.
6. I have taught in 4 different states.
7. Our family enjoys spicy Mexican food and Thai food.
8. I love being a Heritage Husky!
I look forward to partnering with you in your student's education. Please let me know if you have any questions or concerns.
