I am excited to meet all of you for the 2021-2022 school year! Please make sure to check Schoology as we will work on being as paperless as possible. Please make sure your Chromebooks are charged and please have pen and paper ready for those assignments we must jot down on paper.
I need YOUR help to make this year meaningful and interesting-- with your willingness to communicate, write, read, keep an open mind, embrace discomfort, and be present, (see above quotes), we may even make this year transformative! By focusing on different types of writing (essays, research, short stories, poetry, etc.), we have the ability to develop as writers, readers, and critical thinkers. You have the power! I believe in you and I am here to help.
I am most excited to see you all in person because we all need positive energy while we develop as critical readers and writers.
