Hi and welcome to Mrs. Avenmarg's 7th grade ELA website!
I have been teaching in several capacities in the Petal School District for over ten years (K-2 ELL, 5th Grade ELA and Social Studies, 8th Grade ELA, and 5th-8th Grade Speech and Debate), and I am excited to teach 7th grade English Language Arts (ELA) this year. Mississippi State is my alma mater. HAIL STATE! :) All teams are welcome, but prepare for the banter when MSU is playing.
We will combine writing, grammar, and reading skills in this class. We will also continue to focus more on nonfiction reading, research, and project-based learning. Please check the Week at a Glance tab on this website for updates and assignments (press the RSS Feed button at the bottom of that tab to receive updates).
As one of our goals as a school is to eventually go paperless, we will rely heavily on Google Classroom for completing assignments. Your student should be enrolled in my Google Classroom, and you are welcome to join to monitor your student's progress. Just contact me so I can get you set up.
Feel free to email me at firstname.lastname@example.org if you have any questions or comments.
Let's work together to make this a wonderful year of growth.
