My name is Mrs. Decker and I will be your child’s eighth grade Language Arts Teacher.
I strongly believe that all students need reading and writing skills to succeed. They must learn to think on a higher level to consider, analyze, interpret, and evaluate instead of just recalling simple facts. While we will address all of these areas in our classroom, reading is one in particular which lends itself to reinforcement at home. Additionally, one of my objectives is for students to appreciate and enjoy literature by engaging in recreational reading and self-selecting material. I believe that your support in this endeavor will help to ensure their success. Please use the following link to access my Google Classroom.
