Welcome back to another exciting year of learning for you and your scholar. I am so excited to be working with 8th grade scholars this year at ARMS. This school year begins my 21st year teaching and my 1st year as a member of the Jaguar Family. I am truly excited to be working with the scholars, parents and ARMS school community as we make our scholars the best scholars in the state of Georgia.
As scholar's begin the path of transition to high school, strong literacy skills will be vital to their success. To support them in this effort, this year we will focus on increasing our reading comprehension skills; writing using textual evidence and research; vocabulary development; grammar integration and speaking and listening skills. All of these skills will be important as their prepare for high school and beyond.
If you ever need to contact me, my school email is firstname.lastname@example.org. I can also be reached at the school via phone.
My planning time is from 9:40- 11:00. Our team is available for conferencing during this time on Thursdays. Conferences may be scheduled on other days if our schedules permit. Parents may also request morning or after school conference times. If you have not done so already, please register for my class REMIND. Here you can get team updates and reminders for language arts.
