Welcome to Pioneer ELA!

Welcome to 8th Grade ELA for the Pioneer team! It is going to be an excellent year! Check back for news and updates! 

Here's a little bit about me! One of my favorite hobbies is reading. My favorite books I've read this year are Long Way Down by Jason Reynolds (Young Adult), a heartbreaking novel in verse about a teenage boy trying to overcome the tragedy in his life with a fantastic cliffhanger ending, and Refugee by Alan Gratz (Middle Grade), a dramatic story about three teens, living decades apart, trying to escape the turmoil in their homeland. I’m always looking for new books to add to my reading list and classroom library, so please share any suggestions you might have!

This summer, I got married and spent some time in Jamaica! My husband and I have two dogs: Muffin, a shih-tzu poodle mix, and Dutchess, a pit bull. I enjoy taking our dogs for walks and spoiling them. I'm also a huge True Crime fan and spend time listening to True Crime podcasts and watching True Crime documentaries. I am in my final year of courses for my second Master's Degree, an MA in Reading at Webster University.

That’s me; now I can’t wait to get to know each of you!

If you  need extra copies of an assignment, check google classroom first. If you can't find what you need there, check Infinite Campus. Everything I have electronically will be uploaded to one of these two places.
