Language Arts provides students with an in-depth study of the Arizona College and Career Readiness Standards (AZCCRS). This course will utilize the SpringBoard curriculum, the College Board’s official Pre-AP program, to develop students’ abilities to read, write, think, and communicate critically. Students will regularly engage in reading from multiple genres, acquiring vocabulary in context, writing development, listening and speaking in whole or small group formats, and presenting informally or formally.
I was born and raised in Georgia. I graduated from the University of Georgia with degrees in English and journalism in 2012. I then completed my Master of Arts in English Education at Georgia State University. I taught 7th and 9th grade in Atlanta, Georgia. I moved to Arizona in 2016 and began teaching at Mesquite Jr. High School during the 2016-2017 school year.
