Hello, Century 6th grade families,
I am so excited for the 2020-21 school year. I started teaching 6th-grade language arts at Century in 2018. I think of language arts as a mindfulness exercise; reading is the inhale and writing the exhale. My favorite part of being a language arts teacher is reading books and texts that make me think differently about the world, myself, or the human condition. Your child will certainly feel my energy when we engage in the discovery of new literary experiences.
This year will certainly look different than a typical school year and together we will make it a great year. The syllabus this year contains valuable information about what we are learning this year. I promise that together, as a team, your child will experience literature and begin to analyze the themes and ideas necessary to build strong skills in critical thinking and connections to themselves.
