Dear 7th Grade L.A.L. Students and Families,
Hello! My name is Mrs. Nilsen and if you are visiting this page, I may be your Language Arts teacher. I am very excited for you to join this class and anticipate a great year.
My goals for this year are to create a friendly and supportive environment where the students are motivated to learn and feel intellectually challenged every day. I will encourage students to work as hard as they can and not be afraid to take risks. I will help them develop strong organizational skills, become responsible for their work, and develop a passion for reading. I will teach different skills for mastering reading and writing techniques, so that they can apply them outside of the classroom.
I believe that family is the most beneficial support system outside of the classroom. We need to work together so that EVERYONE can feel successful in and out of the classroom. For that reason, please do not hesitate to reach out with any questions you may have! In fact, I would love to hear from you!! Please feel free to contact me via email at firstname.lastname@example.org. You may also call the school and leave a voicemail.
Following this letter, you will find my grading policy, information regarding the use of Google Classroom for educational purposes, information regarding independent reading, and a contact sheet. Please check out my Screencastify for some more information!
