The 2019-2020 school year will be my 8th year teaching 7th grade English Language Arts at EMS. I love sharing my passion for reading, writing, and language with students and especially enjoy working with middle schoolers! Although I am an OSU graduate and huge Buckeye fan, I attended OU for part of my undergraduate studies, so the Bobcats are also pretty close to my heart. I have completed coursework through Ashland University to obtain my Reading Endorsement for grades K-12, and plan to complete my M.Ed in Reading & Literacy this summer with Ashland as well. My husband, Andy, is a grain farmer and we live in Marysville with our two pets: a dog named Roxy and our cat, Sirius Black, who is named after one of my favorite characters from Harry Potter. We are expecting our first child this August!
English Language Arts 7 aims to provide students with the knowledge & skills they need to be successful in today’s world. This includes covering Ohio’s New Learning Standards in reading, writing, language (vocabulary & grammar) and speaking/listening skills.
