Welcome to seventh grade – what a year this proves to be for our students. The word “transition” sums up well what happens in seventh grade. Not only do students change and grow a great deal, but their perspectives on academic and social life are in constant motion.

As a homeroom, social studies, health and art teacher, I am fortunate to have the time to develop a solid understanding of who our students are as individuals. I work hard in students’ courses of study to make what they learn applicable and relevant to their lives. I strive to teach them valuable life skills that they can use presently and for years to come.

Each class will use numerous learning strategies to help students grasp key concepts and gain a thorough understanding of the subject. Our year is highlighted by the friendships we develop and the class accomplishments we make with our Buddy Class, our school and our community.
