Hi, I'm Ms. Needle and I am the Century German teacher. I also teach ELD in one of Mr. Sharrow's sixth grade classes. I have worked at CMS since August 2013, but have experience teaching college German and high school German and Language Arts. I graduated from Smith College for my B.A., University of California at Irvine for my M.A. and received my teacher training from California State University Long Beach.
Normally, the German Club meets every month, and we work hard at having fun and enjoying German culture. How clubs will be run this year is still to be decided.
I enjoy running, playing with my dog, drinking coffee and reading in my free time. I have two children, one in high school and one in college (Go Buffs!), so I am very invested in making the middle school experience a successful one for everyone. I look forward to meeting you! Please do not hesitate to contact me if you have any questions regarding your student's progress.
