Welcome to my webpage. I hope you the information on this page will help you navigate English in the Middle School this year. I will be teaching 7th grade English, 8th grade English, Creative Writing, and Reading Skills! I hope to see many of you in class this year.
I am going to encourage students in my class to bring electronic devices that have WiFi capabilities to my classes to aid in researching. If you have a tablet, laptop, or cell phone with internet access, please bring it. There will be strict rules about usage in class and there will be no texting or game playing while in class.
I also have the expectation that every student in my English classes will have a novel with them everyday! This requirement is for 7th and 8th grade English classes. You may use an electronic tablet that carries your books if you want. Reading for pleasure is elemental to my philosophy for teaching, understanding and using language arts.
If you ever have any questions or concerns, please feel free to contact me via email or my cell phone. (I will hand these out in class if you need them.)
Thanks, Mrs. Vierzba
