    Meet Your Teacher:

    I am a graduate of Pearl High School, and I love teaching in Pirate Country! I received my bachelor's degree from the University of Mississippi and my master's degree from Mississippi College. This is my sixteenth year as a classroom teacher, and I am excited for school to begin!

    April 20th - 24th

    If you have not already, please make sure to submit your child's completed ELA 7 packet. If you missed the drop-off times this morning, bins are available outside the PJHS main office. You can also scan and e-mail them directly to me. Please get them dropped off or sent to me by Thursday, April 23rd. 
     
    For the next round of distance learning, your child will complete a cross-curricular project, which is available online if you did not pick one up this morning:
     
     
    For additional practice that will help students prepare for 8th grade, your child can still work on Newsela and Common Lit (with your permission). I would strongly encourage practicing with these sites as they are the same types of texts your child will be reading next year in preparation for the MAAP assessments. 
     
    Please let me know if you have any questions. 
     
    Stay safe! 

    April 13th - 17th

    Good morning!
     
    I hope you all had a wonderful Easter! 
     
    I wanted to send you a quick message to check in with you and your kiddos. As stated in last week's e-mail, my students should be completing their ELA 7 packet and working on Newsela and Common Lit. If you are not sure how to log into these sites, please let me know.
     
    April is National Poetry month, so I also wanted to include a video to help your kiddos review this genre and the elements of this genre (and a little help with this week's Common Lit poem):
     
     
    Let me know if you have any questions, and have a great week! 
     
    April 6th - 10th

    Good morning!

    I hope this message finds you well! I wanted to remind you that your students have access to Newsela and Common Lit. If you are unsure of how to access these resources, please do not hesitate to let me know. 

    I also wanted to let you know that April is National Poetry Month! I will be assigning a new poem each day in Common Lit, and I want to encourage all of my students to find poetry or songs they love and find comforting or inspiring during this exceptionally trying time. A great website to check out for National Poetry Month is the following: National Poetry Month

    Here's a poem from one of my favorite poets, Langston Hughes: 

    "Theme for English B"

    March 30th - April 3rd

    Good morning!
     
    I wanted to touch base regarding what your students should be working on this week. They should still be working on the ELA 7 packet that was available for pick-up last week. This is also available on the district website at https://www.pearlk12.com/learn
     
    If your students have completed this packet, they can also work on Newsela and Common Lit. Newsela even has a mobile app students can use. If you have any questions about how to get logged in to Newsela or set up an account with Common Lit, please let me know.
     
    Keep in mind that this is also a great time for your students to be reading books and texts that they find interesting. 
     
     
    Check out the digital resources available through the Central MS Regional Library System: https://cmrls.lib.ms.us/digital-library
     
    As always, please do not hesitate to let me know if you have any questions. I am here to help and will be available during regular school hours. 
     
    Stay safe!

    March 23rd - 27th 

    I hope this message finds you all well, particularly in adjusting to our new normal. I wanted to remind you that packet pick-up is going on at the junior high during the following times: 7-9; 11-1; 4-6. Please make sure you ask for ELA 7 (this is for all of my classes - Honors included). 
     
    The packet itself is meant to be turned in upon our return to school, but if you would rather I have the work before then, you can scan the work your child has done and e-mail it to me (if you have that option). 
     
    In addition to the current packet, your child also has a Newsela account and can create, with your permission, a CommonLit account. A new text will be assigned each school day on both sites, though I do not expect your child to read all of them; this is simply to give your student access to a variety of reading material. The information for how to create a Common Lit account is in the "Homework" section of Active Parent. If you cannot access this information, please do not hesitate to contact me. I will also be updating my webpage throughout this time with helpful links for reading and writing at home. 
     
    Finally, please don't feel as though you have to create a homeschooling academy from scratch. The purpose of the packets and online assignments is to keep your child engaged in course material that we have already covered. You are not alone, and we will get through this together. 
     
    Have a great week and stay safe!
