Welcome to 6th grade Language Arts in 213! To give you a little information about me I graduated from the University of Illinois at Chicago in the Spring of 2016. This will be my third year teaching. My previous years of teaching have given me great insight into how to teach 6th grade and how to increase motivation and engagement as students interact with literature. Alongside teaching I am also taking Masters level courses back at UIC to earn a degree in Literacy, Language and Learning. As a teacher I firmly believe that theory and practice should have a close relationship with one another and I look forward to enacting that in this upcoming year.
