What beautiful weather we have been having - I hope you have had the chance to get outside and enjoy the sun and warmth before winter returns!  

Welcome to a short week of school!

 

6th Grade - Read, Write, Create  

Read, Write, Create students are working hard to dream about their service learning projects right now!  Hopefully this has been a conversation topic at home!  If not, students, please share your ideas with your families and parents, please ask your 6th grader about this project!  Service learning requires addressing a genuine community need and combining academic knowledge and skills to work towards a solution to that problem or concern.  We have spent several weeks brainstorming and reflecting on possible LOCAL concerns.  Hopefully, at this point, students are narrowing down their ideas and deciding on a place to focus thier skills and care.  This project will continue over the next several weeks and is currently still in the planning stages!

Journal Writing (7th Grade)

My 7th grade students are expected to write about 4, single-sided pages in their journal every week.  We will have time for journal writing on Tuesdays and Thursdays in Language Arts so be sure to have journals in class, but students will likely have to do most of their journal writing at home.   Near the end of each quarter, students will have their journals graded by the amount they wrote.  Don't lose sight of the overall goal for journal writing: to improve your writing skills and to feel more comfortable writing.  
 

DEAR: Drop Everything And Read! (7th Grade)

My 7th grade students are expected to read 30 minutes every day from a book of their choosing.  Parents will verify this independent reading by signing a reading log.  Find a book that you enjoy reading, and bring it to Language Arts class every day (and bring it home every day).  7th grade classes will have blocks of DEAR time every Wednesday and some Fridays in Language Arts.

About Me
This is my first year teaching at Lake Harriet Upper, and my 12th year teaching overall.  This is my second year in Minneapolis and prior to that, I taught in Los Angeles for 10 years.  I love the ocean and California!  My husband and I are both from the Twin Citites and are happy to be back in MN to explore all of the gems that we have here.  We have three children (ages 6, 5, and 2) that keep us busy and very happy.  I am a graduate of Bethel University in St. Paul and have a degree in Elem.Ed./Middle Level Language Arts (k-8).  I have taught almost all of the grade levels within my licensure!  I tell people that I am a teacher because I love to learn and going to school everyday!  I look forward to getting to know your family this year and working together to expand our knowledge of the world!
