Welcome students! I look forward to getting to know you and exploring English literature and composition together. I love a wide range of genres and periods of writing, will work hard to share the Language Arts with you, and expect that you will bring your best, hardest working self to school every day so that we can all learn and grow together!
Most of the work that we do will be posted in Google Classroom and will be graded in Skyward. Our DAILY AGENDA is a Google Slide that can be found in Google Classroom. You should get in the habit of checking both sites for missed work. Your Google Calendar will show due dates and if other teachers are using Google Classroom for assignments, their assignments will be in Google Calendar as well.
We have a Chromebook lab in our classroom, so we will regularly use a variety of apps: IXL.com, vocabulary.com, Albert.io, NoRedInk.com, TurnItIn.com, and Grammarly.com. Some of these sites need to be accessed through Google Classroom to get the school login access. When you miss class, you can come into my classroom before or after school to access computers if you need to make up online work.
Parents, please share your current email with me and I will invite you to receive updates directly from Google Classroom.
