I am happy to be in my eleventh year as a teacher here in the New Lenox district! I have been here at Martino Junior High School for a total of nine years, and I feel so fortunate to be in such a wonderful place.
This year, I am teaching four 8th grade language arts classes. Please utilize this website for updates in my classes’ curriculum along with any attachments that can be used if you need additional resources.
I respond fastest to email (email@example.com), but you can also call the school and leave me a voicemail at extension 6348. The best times to reach me by phone would be during the morning between 8:00 and 9:00 AM. Thanks for stopping by!
In the new curriculum MyPerspectives, our classes will be starting with unit 3. Read the Home Connection Letter to see more of what your students will be doing within this unit.
