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 Social Studies this year. This is my fourth 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, kayaking, and am learning how to play the ukulele.In ELA we will be using a new curriculum called StudySync. This program is full of engaging text that will help students master reading, writing, speaking, and listening skills.In Social Studies, we will be studying the history of Early Man, Mesopotamia, Egypt, China, India, Greece, and Rome. Students will learn through exploration and hands-on activities.
