Classes Taught: Language! and Reading Intervention
Hi, my name is Jessup Borra and this is my first year at J. Evan's Middle School! This is my fifth year of teaching, and I am very excited to be part of the J. Evan's team. My Language! classes give me an opportunity to work with beginning English Language Learners, which is proving to be a richly rewarding experience. I also teach an 8th grade reading intervention class. I feel that it is my job to not only teach reading strategies, but to foster a love of reading in all my students. My teaching philosophy is this: People don't always remember every detail of the content they learn, but everyone remembers how they were treated. I strive to treat everyone with dignity, respect and kindness. Oh, and it never hurts to laugh a little bit, too!
I went to Colorado State University and received a BA in English Literature. Currently I'm enrolled in a graduate program at CU Boulder. Very soon, I will earn an MA in Educational Equity and Cultural Diversity. I love to read and to learn; if you have a good book recommendation for me, send it my way!
Please don't hesitate to contact me if you have any questions, comments or concerns.
