Welcome to Sixth Grade Language Arts
I am so excited to join Anderson Elementary this year! I look forward to a wonderful year full of growth, learning, and community building. My passion is reading and writing and I can't wait to share that with you! We will be going on a literary adventure this year, as we discover new genres and styles of writing. In our class, we will have the opportunity to challenge ourselves and analyze text with a critical eye. We will be discovering more about ourselves by writing in a variety of styles. We will learn more about fiction and nonfiction texts, as well as explore poetry and persuasive text. Reading and writing is all about expanding our abilities while challenging ourselves. I hope you enjoy this year as we work together to become stronger readers and writers together!
I graduated from Plano ISD and went on to receive a Bachelor of Arts in History from Stephen F. Austin State University (go lumberjacks!). After college, I returned home to begin my teaching career. This will be my fourteenth year in education. I have had the honor of teaching grades fourth, sixth, seventh, and eighth. My husband and I have two adorable dogs that we love spending time with on the weekends. I also enjoy traveling (road trips especially), reading, and spending time with my family. I have a special affinity for animals and love to visit unusual ones whenever I can.
Please let me know if you have questions or if there is anything I can do to help!
