I teach 6th and 7th grade English Language Arts at James Breckinridge Middle School. I look forward to working with you all throughout the year. This year we will be focusing on both reading and writing skills, finishing out the year with a Reading SOL. During this class, students will participate in multiple projects and assignments to strengthen vocabulary and content knowledge in line with the Virginia State Standards of Learning. On this page I will be adding some useful links that we will be using this year.
