Welcome to Sixth Grade Language Arts, Social Studies, and Introduction to World Languages!
I am excited and honored to be here as your sixth grade teacher. Our curriculum is novel-based using the following books:Where the Red Fern Grows, Holes, Upside Down In the Middle of Nowhere, The Lightning Thief, and The Crossover. In social studies, we will explore ancient civilizations, and in Introduction to World Languages we will explore the cultures and languages that form the basis for our own language.
Prior to coming to Hull, I taught seventh grade Language Arts and creative writing at Adams Middle School in Redondo Beach. I have published one book, Bear Speaks, in 2010, and I am currently at work on a young adult fiction book. When I am not reading, writing or teaching, I enjoy watching and acting in plays, camping, and bird watching with my husband. I have one daughter who graduated from Columbia University in the City of New York and now works there (way too far from Los Angeles!). I live by the beach with two extremely curious and unpredictable cats.
