•  Welcome students and parents of Mills Middle School. I am very excited and honored to be here. I am looking forward to my second year of being here. I am teaching 8th grade Study Sync and ELD sections that serve Long Term English Learners.  In addition to these sections, I run the art club, create Merit and Social-Emotional classes and presentations and work with the various projects that support our school. 

    In my classes, we focus on community, as well as critical reasoning and writing skills. We work with foundational literature, Inside curriculum, Step Up Writing curricula and Study Sync. We also work with "7 Effective Habits of being a Teen" by Sean Covey and work on empathy skills. 

    I am a very experienced English Learner teacher; and I enjoy teaching students relevant study skills and strengthening their writing for future grade levels.
