Welcome to 8th Grade ELA! I am excited and honored to be your teacher this year. Our time together will be filled with fun and engaging activites designed to strengthen your reading and writing skills. In addition to analyzing and critiquing short stories, novels, poems, and works of nonfiction, we will publish several writing pieces. By the end of this year, my hope is that you will have gained a deeper appreciation of literature and the writing process.
"What lies behind us and what lies before us are tiny matters compared to what lies within us."
