Hello all! Welcome to the 7th grade! I am so thrilled to be an English teacher at Willow Creek this year. I can't wait to meet all of you! This summer has been wildly busy for me: I got married, changed cities, and moved into a new house! I can't wait to start the school year. 

We have lots to do in 7th grade this year: questions to be asked, books to be read, and poems to write. You are in the right place. In order to have the best year possible, please know that I hold my students and myself to certain expectations. I expect my students to show up each day ready to be kind, safe, responsible, and respectful. Make sure you have a pencil, folder, paper, and INDEPENDENT reading book every day. Strive to be an open and positive learner. Know that meaningful learning involves taking risks and working through difficulty.

In return, I am committed to doing my very best as your teacher.  I will strive to create lessons and materials that engage and challenge you. I will be available and accessible when you have questions. My goal is to create an environment in which you feel safe and important.

Research has shown time and again that the best way to become a better reader and writer it to read and write, often. Please know that most of your homework in this class will consist of independent reading.  

Needless to say, we are going to have so much fun in 7th grade this year, and we'll learn a lot too!
