Hello and welcome to the 2020-2021 school year!
I hope you are as excited as I am! My name is Cara Funte. I am beginning my 5th year of teaching and this is my 2nd year as a Union Grove Wolverine. I know the beginning of this school year is a strange one, but I am positive that we can still get off to a strong start virtually. Communication will be so important during this time! The best way to reach me is through email. Google Classroom will be the place to find daily assignments and meetings. Students should see the Google Classrooms that they are enrolled in from the Google Classroom homepage. This can be reached from their launchpad on their Chromebooks.
I teach 9th grade Literature and Composition. We will be studying various pieces of literature and media such as novels, short stories, non-fiction works, poems, articles, podcasts, and films. We will also grow our writing skills by practicing different forms of formal and informal types of writing. Finally, we will become proficient listeners and speakers in the classroom and beyond. I am excited to get to know my students and their families this year. Please check back here occasionally for updates and materials.
