Welcome to 8th Grade

    We read to know we are not alone.                 --C.S. Lewis

         Welcome to 8th Grade! I am so happy to be here to work with you this year. I received my Bachelor's Degree from Western Washington University with a focus on Elementary Education and English/Language Arts 4-12. I received my Master's Degree in Instruction & Technology from Western Governors University.  I've been teaching since 1987. There is no place I'd rather be than in this beautiful area. This is going to be a great year. You'll see.

    This link will give you an idea of some of the curriculum we cover monthly in our 8th grade English classes.  
     These are the standards by which we do the majority of our grading in our English classes at Pioneer.
