Two roads diverged in a wood, and I took the one less traveled by and that has made all the difference. By Robert Frost

Welcome to my 8th Grade language arts classes! I have been an English teacher at Golden West for an amazing 28 years.  I have had the pleasure of teaching multiple children from the same family, as well as two students who are the children of some of my first students!  I am passionate about learning, and hope to communicate my love for literature and writing in a way that encourages and inspires my students.  I work hard to create a supportive and collaborative classroom environment, where everyone feels valued.  We will be exploring all aspects of the language arts--reading many different types of literature, studying and building our vocabulary, making oral presentations, creating original writing, editing written work focusing on specific grammatical skills, conducting research and writing a paper, and so much more!!!  It is my hope that my students will have a year of discovery, growth, and feel ready to make a successful transition from middle school to high school and beyond.  I look forward to sharing this year's journey with you!
