Welcome back to TMS, everybody! I hope you all had a restful and fun-filled summer vacation. I can't wait to meet you on Tuesday, September 5th!
Here's a little bit about me as a teacher: I've been teaching for 20 years now, and I came to TMS back in 2004. Over the years I've had a number of roles here at TMS. I've been a Study Skills teacher and Skill Building teacher, and I've taught language arts on every grade level. This year I'm very excited to be working again with the Blue Team and teaching 7th Grade Language Arts!
I'm sure you've heard that 7th grade is a very challenging year, but it's also an exciting year with all that you are going to learn in your classes and the projects you get to create. This year you'll have the opportunity to make new friends, try new things, and start to figure out the kind of person you are and want to be. Know that there are many people here to help you along the way, and I am just one of them. But communication is key: If you don't ask, if you don't share, then you won't be heard.
Welcome to 7th grade!
