I teach 8th Grade ELA and English 1. I graduated from Liberty University with a MAT in Education and moved to Sumter in 2008. I am married to a wonderful man and we have a beautiful daughter. We also have a furbaby that has worked her way into our hearts. I look forward to working with you and your child in providing them with a challenging; yet, fun and exciting way to expand their ELA knowledge. My classes offer an integrated and active approach to reading, writing, vocabulary and grammar. Students will learn 21st Century skills essential for success in college, career, and life. These include critical and creative thinking, clear reasoning, research skills, collaboration, communication, information media, and technology literacy. My class offers a range of fiction and nonfiction texts that differ in complexity for the advancement of all learners. ***please visit the Google calendar, powerschool, and the Google classroom for continual updates*
