    Welcome to 8th grade Language Arts! This year, I’m excited to be starting my 17th year of teaching and my seventh year at Harmony. Before coming here, I taught for 10 years in Fairfax County.  I earned my bachelor's degree in Family and Child Development from Virginia Tech (go Hokies!) and my master's degree in Education from George Mason.  On the weekends you will probably find me alongside my husband cheering on our son at the soccer fields or watching our daughter perform at local theater arts productions.
     
    This year’s English and Reading curriculum focuses on the fundamentals of reading and writing – skills that will serve you well for a lifetime in any profession you choose to undertake.  By the end of this school year, I hope you will enjoy reading and writing as much as I do. Reading helps you learn from the experiences of others and helps you cope with what life throws at you. Writing allows you to share your thoughts and experiences with others. No one sees the world the way you do; the way you write and the things you write about can say a lot about who you are and what you believe. In the words of Tony Robbins, “A life worth living is a life worth recording.”
