Hello and welcome to the 2021-2022 school year!
I hope you are as excited as I am! My name is Cara Funte. I am beginning my 6th year of teaching and this is my 3rd year as a Union Grove Wolverine. I know the past year and a half has been strange for all of us. I am excited to get back to some normalcy and see my classroom full of smiling faces!
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.
Communication with my students and parents is so important to me. The best way to reach me is through email (see below). Do not hesitate to reach out with any questions or concerns. Google Classroom will be the place to find daily assignments and materials. 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.
Let's have a great year!
