• Brangela K. West - 6th, 7th, and 8th Grade English Language Arts

    Hello Wonderful 6th, 7th, and 8th Grade Parents,

    I want to take this opportunity to introduce myself and express my excitement about teaching your child English Language Arts for the 2017-2018 school year.  My name is Mrs. West, and I am looking forward to a productive partnership with you to ensure each student can achieve his/her highest potential.  I recognize in order to be successful each student needs support from both home and school.  In supporting the students, I know that being on the same page with parents will make a great difference in your child’s education. 

    I am a sixth year teacher at EXCEL Academy and I am very excited about this journey.  My English Language Arts class will be a very busy place to learn.  The classroom environment is structured by a variety of hands-on learning activities.  My expectations for each student are high; therefore, it is imperative that students come in with the willingness to learn and receive what is being taught.  Syudents will set weekly goals and upload work samples to their Learner Profile.  

    Communication is essential, therefore I will be sending e-mails and/or making telephone calls throughout the school year.  I will do my best to keep this page as updated as possible with classwork as well as homework assignments.

    Please know that I have your child’s best interest at heart.  You can be assured that each student will be treated with the highest level of respect and fairness in my class.  I have incorporated Teaching with Love and Logic inside my classroom.  I will make every effort and/or attempt to use this technique with all students.

    If you have a concern or need to contact me please do so at Brangela.West@henry.k12.ga.us or 770.957.4101.  Thank you for your time, and I look forward to an AWESOME year.  EXCEL Academy - Cultivate. Grow. Harvest.  #EXCELisALLin

    Best Regards,

    Brangela K. West
