The new school year is here and it's very exciting in grade 7-9. This year I am teaching English Language Arts and supporting the Resource program at the junior high level. We are happy to welcome Jon Michael into our group as an EA. I know that he will bring some great energy and knowledge to our learning. I am excited to focus this year on combining my ELA with Mr. Marr's Mi'kmaq and Outdoor Education activities. Students will be reading, writing and speaking about the things they are going to be doing. This should be a great learning experience for them and myself as well! Our plan as a grade 7-9 group is to have parents drop into our classes/school on a more frequent basis. This will happen through the cultural connections in the Mi'kmaq lessons as well as we are looking at creating a parent drop in night once a month. Look for more information in the coming weeks.
I look forward to a great school year with a lot of fun, energy and learning.
