Welcome to 7th grade! I am teaching mostly language arts but also have 1 life science class this year. I started teaching middle school 30 years ago and I love working with middle school students! I am originially from the Chicago area but have also lived in New Jersey and Pennsylvania before relocating to Florida in 2016. The main focus for students in my classroom is becoming life long learners. Language arts lessons will include reading, writing, grammar, spelling and projects of all kinds. Science lessons will focus on deductive reasoning, research and scientific investigations. Students will have opportunities to work independently as well as collaboratively with others.
