• Welcome to 8th grade Language Arts! This is my second year at Northwest Middle School and I am excited to start another school year as a Viking! I am a proud graduate of Virginia Tech, where I completed an undergraduate degree in English and a Masters in Education. I grew up in Forest, Virginia and currently live in Greensboro with my husband Jason, my seven year old daughter, Haven, and my five year old son, Jake. We also have a kitty named Scratch. This will be my 11th year teaching middle school Language Arts. My family keeps me extremely busy! I enjoy reading, hiking, shopping, running, travelling and taking my kids on outings that they enjoy. 

     Please navigate this page to learn more about my Language Arts class. I will upload important documents that students and parents may find useful.

    I will send out reminders for ELA using "Team Pisgah" Remind.
