Degrees and Certifications:
I've been waiting all summer to meet you so we can get started in reading class. If you love to read...BRAVO....I hope I can challenge you with some new ideas about reading. If you are hesitant about reading...well...I hope by the end of 6th grade you have grown to love reading and feel confident in reading because you have completely read a couple of new books. So, I hope you like to play with words and embrace the lessons we share together.
I love learning and I hope you do too. Whether it's in an academic environment such as East Carolina University as a college student or Grover C. Fields as a middle grades student or whether its out of the classroom while riding on horseback or picking the summer jewel fruit of figs or spending time with family and our very loved pets there's always new ideas to absorb. Reading and hands-on practice go together just like peanut butter and jelly. Both are necessary for you to grow academically and emotionally. I look forward to learning with you and getting to know you as a student.
I've always heard "it's the people who make the place" so I do hope we have a great school year together filled with great accomplishments so when you talk about your school days and you look back on your 6th grade year in my class you can say, "I learned a lot of book sense but most of all it was the people who made the place." Love.
