Dear Eighth Grade Students and Parents:

Welcome to the 2021-22 school year! I am pleased to take this opportunity to introduce myself to you and welcome your student to the eighth grade at Turner Middle School. This year will be my 7th year teaching English at Turner Middle School. I am a graduate of Clayton State University with a major in middle grades and a minor in history. I have also been the English department chair for our school for the last two years.  

English is a subject area that incorporates lesson plans in reading, writing, listening, speaking, and viewing. I am looking forward to the upcoming school year, building upon the skills students mastered last year and helping students accomplish new challenges in the language arts subject area. I feel a positive learning experience begins with a collaborative effort among parents, students, and teachers, and I welcome your questions and concerns as the year progresses.  

We have many expectations for our eighth-grade students at Turner Middle School. One of the biggest is being responsible for assignments and actions. Your student is responsible for completing and turning in all classwork. Homework will be assigned daily in my class and will include daily reading logs (Monday-Thursday), which are due to be turned in EVERY FRIDAY ON GOOGLE CLASSROOM unless otherwise noted via email or text. You must follow up at home with assignments, projects, homework, correspondences, and reinforcing positive behavior. All weekly classroom assignments and homework will be posted on Google classroom for you weekly. 

My ultimate goal for each of my eight grade students is to experience success and to foster a love of reading and writing. I am thrilled to work with you and your child for the school year. If questions or concerns arise, please feel free to email  at [email protected] or call between 8:00 am-4:30 pm Monday through Friday. I anticipate a great year working with you!
