Classroom needs - ongoing:
We can always use pretzels for SSR on Fridays. We go through about 3 Costco large bags a week, and I purchase them if parents don't help out. And, Smarties are always appreciated. Thanks! (Please do not feel obligated to help out financially if it would be a hardship. For those who can, though, I'd sure appreciate it.)
Who am I?
I am fairly new to Twality, (this is my 4th year here) but not to the district. I taught 7th and 8th language arts in Central Oregon until I moved to Tualatin. I taught at Fowler for 2 years After that I was an Instructional Improvement Specialist at the district office, then I spent 2 years at Tualatin High School as the Prevention Specialist.
I am currently the President of the Oregon Council of Teachers of English and I co-chair the Oregon Spirit Book Award. I am passionate about literacy and about middle school, so I’m very happy teaching 8th graders at Twality. (I also love 8th-graders. Weird, I know.)
