Welcome to the 2017-2018 school year. I’m excited to spend this year with your 6th grader. This is my 17th year teaching but only my 2nd here at Ludlow.  I am a Ludlow native and happy to be back home teaching 6th grade.

 6th grade is a challenging year. We are working on transitioning to middle school and the work becomes more challenging.  We will be working from Spirngboard (a comprehensive language arts program) and we will also be reading novels, weekly nonfiction articles (both on line and in print), developing our writing skills through various writing pieces, creating original poetry, learning Greek and Latin prefixes and suffixes and so much more.

6th graders are also expected to complete independent reading for their reading counts points. There are many interesting novels in our libraries as well as a collection in the classroom.  Reading is a key to all other classes so it’s important read daily!

 

Our Mission
The Ludlow Independent School District is committed to fostering a culture
of rigor excellence, and personal accountability by developing meaningful relationships with students, families, and community members to support and empower students to graduate with college and career readiness skills.
