English 8 and Yearbook
Welcome to 8th grade English and Yearbook. In English we will study various types of writing, read engaging pieces of literature, and create projects that integrate reading and writing based on our curriculum. In Yearbook we will capture memories throughout the year to create our school yearbook. We will learn yearbook terminology and utilize an online program to design the yearbook. If you have any questions or concerns please feel free to contact me.
I love being a part of the South Valley staff! This is my 24th year teaching. I spent the first 21 years teaching elementary school. I taught second, third, fourth, and fifth grade in both Maryland and Arizona. This is my third year teaching at South Valley. I have taught 7th and 8th grade English, Newspaper, and Yearbook.
I moved to Arizona in 1999 from Maryland and love it here! I live in Gilbert with my two children. My daughter is a senior at Campo Verde and attended South Valley for junior high. My son is in 7th grade at South Valley and loves it.
