Welcome Awesome Wildcats!
I am so excited to teach sixth grade English Language Arts at Oakcrest Intermediate this year!
It is my goal to help your child grow as a reader and writer this year! We will engage in many reading and writing activities that will strengthen and increase their language arts skills and will enhance their love for learning. Also, being great citizens and classmates will be emphasized in our class through the eight expectations for living and the life principles in Great Expectations. Students will grow as scholars and in character during our class!
I want to partner with you in your child's educational journey! Please contact me anytime through email if you have any questions or concerns. I am always willing to help! To stay informed, please subscribe to my Edlio page (under my picture and name) for important announcements and assignments for our class. Communication is key in helping your student be most successful!
I am looking forward to getting to know you! We will have a great year!
