Welcome to 7th Grade English and AVID!BTSN PresentationI am so excited for this 2018/2019 school year to begin! This will be my 13th year of teaching in San Juan Unified and the years have flown by. English class will be a place for reading, writing, researching, and digging deep into texts. I'm thrilled to share my love of words with your child this year. We are going to have a blast! AVID will be a class where students will learn and apply study skills and learning strategies to improve performance in all classes. The best way to contact me is by email at firstname.lastname@example.orgI do my best to respond within 24 hours, but it is often much faster than that.
Google DocsStudents will become very familiar with Google Docs in English but it will also be utilized in other content areas. Google Docs is essentially cloud based document creation and storage program. These are available from any computer and are saved without the need for a thumb drive. Students also have a gmail email address that is within the sanjuan.edu network which means that they cannot send or receive emails with anyone outside of the sanjuan.edu server.Suggested Supply List
