• Welcome to 7th grade ELA.  I teach honors and on-level reading and English, and I am the ELA Department Chair.  I have a Bachelor's in Secondary English Education and a Master's in Educational Administration.   Throughout my twenty-seven years of teaching, I have taught English and reading to grades 7th-12th in a variety of schools.  This school year will be my fourteenth year at MJH.  In addition to teaching, I also sponsor our monthly book club (Bookworms) along with Ms. Bennett.   I look forward to a successful school year with my new students.
