    My goal for Fast-Paced Language Arts is to help students who are gifted and academically talented to have a year of growth (not just a year of A’s). Our FPLA curriculum includes developing reading skills with challenging texts, writing and speaking clearly, exploring complex ideas, and understanding the way our English language works. Some of the books we will use are listed on by grade level on the 6th/7th/8th Grade Resources pages.

    I like to grow a learning community where every member is valued. Within that supportive context, I hope each student will work through and learn from challenges and mistakes as well as successes!

    I am very grateful for the supportive involvement of parents and especially for the joyful opportunity to support middle school students as they grow.


    Please feel free to contact me with any questions or information that might help me be a better teacher to your child.
