Welcome to 8th grade ELA with Mrs. Smith. I have been teaching for ten years. Most of my previous experience was in Jefferson Parish; this is my second year in St. Tammany and at Slidell Jr. High. I love teaching and inspiring students to love literature. I am very energetic and tend to teach on the theatrical side when it comes to reading stories and novels.
I attended Southeastern Louisiana University and graduated in 2008 with a Bachelor of Arts in English Education. I hope to earn a Master's degree in English in the future. I have completed Kagan training in cooperative learning strategies and multiple intelligences.
I am looking forward to teaching at Slidell Junior High this year. The curriculum is filled with some of my favorite young adult literature, and I am excited about getting to share my love of these stories with my students. I know we will have a great year and I will do everything to ensure the success of my students.
