• I am excited to be your Grade 8 Language Arts teacher this year. I am a Charlotte transplant and UNC graduate (GO HEELS!). I am looking forward to a very exciting and rewarding year. I have a B.A. from the University of North Carolina at Chapel Hill in English Literature, and an M.S. Ed in Curriculum, Instruction, and Assessment. I am also district certified to teach Advanced Learners. Currently, I am working towards my Ph.D. in Education. This will be my 6th year at SEMS. 





    Parents/guardians: Please contact me if you have any concerns. If you wish to speak with me, do not hesitate to e-mail (williaa14@gcsnc.com) or call with any questions. I am welcome to any helpful advice to guarantee your child’s success. And please let me know the best way (and time) to reach you. Students: Please let me know when something is confusing or challenging so, I can assist you. We are all partners working together to ensure success.
