Welcome to 8th Grade ELA! I am looking forward to an incredible year. This year in English Language Arts class we will continue to develop our reading, writing, speaking and listening skills. I use Google Classroom to post study guides, notes and assignments. Have your student show you how to access this page. If you have any questions or concerns, please do not hesitate to contact me at

Thanks to students and parents for working together with us as we provide enrichment activities over the next few weeks! Assignments will be posted in Google Classroom.  Please continue to email with clarifying questions.Email:
