8th grade English Language Arts
Hello parents, I am Aaron Berry, your child's new English Language Arts teacher! I am a recent graduate from Ohio University, and I am so excited to have the opportunity to work with your kids!
My main expectation for your kids in the classroom, is that they show respect to everyone else in the classroom. I don't want to get hung up on rule after rule after rule--it all boils don to respect. I also EXPECT that we are going to have an awesome year together!
For this class each child needs:
2 folders, 2 notebooks, 1 package of pencils, and their brain!
I DO accept late work--HOWEVER, it is the student's responsibility to bring me their completed, late assignment. After the initial deadline, I will not chase a student down to get their assignments in to me, nor will I offer constant reminders.
