    Welcome to ELA!

    Sixth grade is such an exciting time! I am so thankful to have the opportunity to teach your children here at Effingham County Middle School.

    In our classroom we will be using Read 180 and System 44 to help students increase their Lexiles throughout the year and aid in developing them into fluent readers. These programs incorporate state standards into the curriculum in order to provide a variety of learning opportunities for our students. 

    Our classroom uses rotations to navigate through multiple forms of instruction and independent reading time to keep students engaged, energized, and never bored!

    I offer tutoring in the mornings or afternoon, with 24 hours notice, any day of the week.
