Degrees and Certifications:
Dear Students, Parents, and Guardians,
I am delighted to join the Helen A. Fort school community this year as an 8th-grade Language Arts teacher. I bring with me over a decade of experience in teaching.
Learning is a labor of love. Our classroom is a place where curiosity is encouraged, questions are celebrated, and the joy of discovery is a daily experience. Learning is not just about absorbing information, but about becoming well-rounded individuals who can think critically, communicate effectively, and contribute positively to the world.
One of the greatest privileges we have in life is literacy. Reading has the power to transport us to different worlds, broaden our perspectives, and ignite our imaginations. Writing fosters empathy, critical thinking, and a deeper understanding of the world around us.
In our classroom, community is key. A supportive and inclusive learning environment is the foundation for success. We work together to create a space of belonging and respect among our peers. Every student brings unique strengths and perspectives to the table, and our class is committed to helping each one of you thrive academically and personally.
I look forward to a year filled with exploration, growth, and a deep appreciation for the power of language and literature.
Let's get to work!
