Hello, Union Grove Families,
Welcome to Sixth Grade English Language Arts here at Union Grove Middle School. I am honored to be part of your student's learning journey this school year, and I am looking forward to both a rewarding and productive school year.
I want to share a few things about myself. I am married to my husband Dennis for thirty-one years and we have four beautiful children. Our oldest two are fraternal twins, one boy, and a girl entering into their final year of college. A son who will start the 12th grade this school year and our youngest daughter is beginning the 10th grade.
In my classroom, I work hard to promote a tight-knit student-centered community. I believe in a safe environment. I will continue to work hard all year long building a classroom that encourages thinking, respect, trust, and a sense of ownership among students. I truly understand the magnitude of my job and I embrace the responsibility and the honors. I also believe that parents, teachers, and students must work as a team to achieve our highest potential.My classroom environment centers around every student as we create opportunities to empower their learning. Students will participate in various service-based learning projects and other exhibitions to demonstrate their knowledge throughout the year. Email and Remind are my primary sources of communication if you have any questions, feel free to contact me at firstname.lastname@example.org.
I look forward to working with you this year!
