Welcome back to another great school year!

Dear Students,

This year like many others, is certain to bring with it many new & exciting experiences. The emphasis in our class this year will be to continue building on content knowledge with a greater focus on informational texts & primary sources. I will endeavor to help you hone and augment your academic vocabulary and build on grammar fundamentals. Our enriched Language Arts  & History course aligns with CCSS, and includes additional readings with increased complexity. This is designed to excite & challenge you to imbibe all that our new textbook adoption (Study Sync) has to offer. Students, also know that debates, role playing, thought experiments & games (time permitting) will be a regular part of your classes. I look forward to teaching all of you!
