Welcome to the 2017-18 school year. I am very excited to continue my teaching journey at Summit Academy for the second year. This is my seventh year teaching English, and I am looking forward to many more years, here in the Mesa District.

Below is a Suggested Supply List for the 2017-2018 School Year:

  • Two Spiral Notebooks (1 for each semester)
  • Highlighters (Blue, Yellow, Pink, Orange, Green)
  • 25 Pencils
  • Pens (Blue, Black, and Red)
  • Loose Leaf Paper (College Ruled)
  • Colored Pencils
  • Scissors
  • Glue Sticks (4)

 

When I am not at school I enjoy spending time with my family, going on adventures with my four year old, Connor, and being a life long learner. I am continuously on the search for new information regarding English, and Middle School students.

 

I am a firm believer that it takes a village. I hope to work with you and your student this year to ensure their success in my class. Please feel free to email or call me, with any questions or concerns.

We will be focusing on writing, using informational text to reach our goals. Our focus for the first three quarters will focus on Argumentative and Informative essay writing to help prepare our students for the future. The last quarter of the year we will wrap up with Narrative writing, Poetry, and Public Speaking.
