Welcome to 7th Grade English class!
You'll be writing and reading every day.
We base our curriculum around quarterly units -- the first will be the thematic unit "Coming of Age." We'll also explore the themes of survival and perseverance, as well as the genre of science fiction.
You will be always be independently reading a book of your choice (in addition to the reading assignments directly provided to you in class).
Get to Know Me Through PIcs:
Just chatting with Martha (Washington) about the heat spell that's descended upon Mt. Vernon.
On the day of my middle daughter, Leslie's, wedding last May.
Yet one more:
Hanging out with some 'ole lady (?) and my grandbabies, Jaden & Jaela
Our Class = Guaranteed to be worthwhile + fun!
A Bit About Me:
I'm married, have three daughters, two stepsons, and two (twin) stepdaughters. I graduated from Vanderbilt University with my bachelor's degree (where I played varsity basketball), from Tennessee Tech University with my master's, and also earned post-graduate hours at John Brown University and the University of Arkansas. I was a Captain in the U.S. Army.
