Welcome to 7th grade Reading

It’s been a fun summer, but I am so excited to get this year kicked off! We are going to be doing a lot of reading this year and working on thinking deeper. This is my 3rd year teaching at White Oak and my 8th year teaching in all.  I was a 13 year Roughneck and walked these very halls as a middle school student. After experiencing other districts, I can honestly  say that WO is the best school around.

My goal is to create an environment that fosters communication, collaboration and critical thinking. I hope students enjoy coming to my class, but it’s not going to be easy! I believe ALL students can learn if they put forth the effort. I want to push everyone to their next level (whatever level that may be for each student).

I look forward to a great year and working with all these Roughnecks!
