Language Arts Grades 6, 7, and 8

I am enjoying my nineteenth year as a junior high language arts teacher at St. Thomas More School. I consider the fine achievements of my many former students to be not only a testament to my program, but a strong motivation to pursue creative and innovative ways to make my classes as current, exciting, and informative as possible. I am proud to be a part of STM, a community built upon excellence in education, Christian values, and a sincere desire to simply care about every child who enters our doors.
