Welcome to my Gifted English class.  This is my ninth year teaching and my fifth year at Harry Hurst Middle School. I am looking forward to teaching your student and sharing my love and passion for English Language Arts.


This year I will incorporate Google Classroom with our district provided Chromebooks. Google Classroom is a tool that allows me to post announcements and reminders for students. It also allows for class assignments and submissions to be to posted and collected digitally.

To access Google Classroom please use the following link and have your child log into their Google account. Once logged in, you can review class announcements, assignments and course information. You can also view Google Docs from the “Google Classroom” link on the left side of the menu.
