Mrs. Butler's Welcome Page
Seventh Grade EnglishMrs. Penelope Butler
I came from England where I had been teaching fifth and sixth graders at RAF Alconbury for the Department of Defense Dependents Schools. I received my Bachelor of Arts degree in Art from Clarion State College in Pennsylvania and my teaching certification from the University of North Carolina. I also have a Master's degree in Curriculum and Instruction from the University of Oklahoma. My current professional development is focusing on teaching my students about having a growth mindset. I have recently read Mindsets in the Classroom and will be talking about it at Back to School night. Last summer I also was fortunate enough to attended a fabulous course from Columbia University's Teacher's College. So many ideas to try!
Teaching is definitely a work of heart!Staying Informed
I post my assignments in Google Classroom. The calendar is available below.
Parents, you can receive Guardian Summaries from Classroom about your child's progress. If you have not received an invitation from me within the first full week of school with your child's name and mine on it, please email me (firstname.lastname@example.org).
Grades are posted in Phoenix, which you can access through ParentVue
