• Welcome to E.L.A.! This year you will be exploring a number of different units of study. I am looking forward to a fantastic year full of hard work. Essentially one of our main goals is to become better readers and writers. All of our units of study will help you prepare for the New York State E.L.A. Exam at the end of the school year. 

    We will be studying many different topics and reading short stories, poems, and novels. Discussion weighs heavily in this class and I expect you to share your thoughts and ideas often. Being present and ready to learn every day is essential to your success. The work will be challenging, but it will also be fun. Remember you are not alone in anything you do, I am here to help!
