8th Grade English Language Arts
I am a graduate of Marlow Public Schools and received a Bachelor of Science degree from Southwestern Oklahoma State University in 1997.
I am so excited to be teaching 8th grade English Language Arts! Employing good reading and writing skills will benefit students far beyond their middle school years. During our class time, we focus heavily on grammar, literary devices, and essay composition. In addition to students' independent reading time, together we read a famous and well-loved piece of literature: A Christmas Carol by Charles Dickens. It is my hope and goal for students that they gain valuable experience in grammar and writing that will enable them to be successful in their chosen careers.
