Welcome to English 8!

Not your ordinary English class

You think English is Easy?

In this class, we will learn to communicate effectively and read beyond our normal gamut of stories. I hope my students learn how to express themselves and to appreciate reading as a skill and not as a chore!

A little bit about Me!

After graduating Turner Ashby High, I went to West Virginia University (Go Mountaineers!) where I got a B.A in English and a B.A in Economics. Then I entered the business field at Banta Book Corp. Finally I found my true calling to go to graduate school to be an English teacher. I received my M.A.T. at James Madison University. Even though I'm certified to teach 6th-12th grade, I really found my home in 8th grade. I love middle school!
