Welcome!I am very excited to be your teacher this year! I will be teaching two sections of advanced 6th grade English/Language Arts and one section of 6th grade P.E. This is my sixth year at Woodland Middle School after teaching six years at Skyway Elementary. I received my Bachelor's degree with a reading endorsement from the University of Idaho and a Master's degree in Curriculum and Instruction through U of I as well. Go Vandals! I love traveling, hiking, kayaking, and am learning how to play the ukulele.In ELA we will be using a curriculum called StudySync. This program is full of engaging texts that will help students master reading, writing, speaking, and listening skills. Each of our four units will feature a novel we will read as a class.In P.E. students will learn the basics of physical fitness and play a variety of sports and games. Students will learn daily fitness routines that will prepare them for PE in future grades.
