About the Teacher
Degrees and Certifications:
6th Grade Language Arts
Sixth grade language arts and Targeted Instruction means many adventures; some new, some familiar. We will study short stories, novels, poetry, and non-fiction. You will learn many literary terms, which means new vocabulary. You will learn new strategies that will help you read and understand a variety of materials taken from several resources such as our textbook, newspapers, magazines, and other sources. Additionally, we will be writing from paragraphs to essays this year as we study the craft of writing.
You are expected to work and grow individually. Collaboration with your peers will occur frequently. The skills you learn in these courses will help you succeed across the content areas. In class, you will be expected to give your best effort each and every day. My philosophy is that effort ALWAYS beats ability!
