Welcome ELA 7

I am so excited to introduce myself as your 7th grade ELA teacher. I graduated from Buffalo State College with a degree in ELA and Childhood Education.  I am currently going back to school for TESOL at SUNY Brockport.  I love to read, cook, play volleyball (and coach), and watch football and hockey.  I love my two dogs, Dixie and Sadie.  They are both rescues, and are perfectly imperfect. 
During the year we will be exploring real-world topics and issues through reading, writing, research and discussion.  I have planned and will provide for two major book units focused on "The Outsiders" by S.E. Hinton and "The Giver" by Lois Lowry. Most of our work will be completed using Google Classroom.
