It is hard to believe that I have started my second year of teaching!  I am so excited to work with the new group of students.  They have shown their willingness to work hard as we have already completed two units - Write Tools writing which focused on paragraphs and a Short Story unit where the students read three different stories in order to learn literary terms.  And presently, the students and I are embarked on the journey of reading William Golding's infamous novel, Lord of the Flies.  To break tradition, we did watch the movie first, and in doing so the students have responded well to the difficult text.  Overall, through the first twelve weeks of the 2013-2014 school year, I am very proud of the progress and excited to see what else this group of learners can do throughout the year.
