Welcome to English 8!
I am sure you are dying to know everything about me, so here's just a bit for now. I have both a bachelor's and a master's in English from BYU and along with teaching writing during my master's, I have been teaching middle school for three years. I love books, movies, and music, and if you give me half a chance I'll talk your ear off about them. Outside of school I spend most of my time reading, baking, camping, hiking, biking, watching college football or lacrosse and playing video games. I like many, many things. There's a good chance that something you like to do is something I like to do.

In English 8 this year, we're going to focus our learning on becoming better readers and writers. We're going to practice how to use reading and writing learn and communicate. Throughout the year, we're going read, watch, listen to, and tell stories. We're going to read articles and arguments about everything from the history of Air Jordans to how we bury the dead. We're going to read a lot and write a lot. And I promise even if you hate both of those, you're going to have a good time in my class.
