Welcome to 8th grade English.  We will be learning various types of writing, reading intriguing pieces of literature, and creating projects based on our curriculum.

About Me

I am very excited to be teaching at South Valley Junior High.  South Valley has fabulous students and staff.  This is my 23rd year teaching in Gilbert Public Schools and I love it.  This is my fifth year teaching English at SVJH and my first year teaching 8th grade.  Prior to SVJH, I was an Elementary Librarian for 13 years and taught 6th grade for five years.  

I live in Gilbert with my husband and three daughters.  The older two are in college and the youngest is a sophomore at Campo Verde.  All the girls attended South Valley.

My professional goal is for the students to gain the skills necessary to be successful in reading and writing at the high school level.
