Learners will utilize a five-step process to writing paragraphs and essays. The process includes the following steps: Pre-writing, Writing, Revising, Editing, and Publishing. I will begin the course using graphic organizers to formulate ideas, then we will expand on those ideas to develop paragraphs and then a completed essay. My goal is to ensure that learners are at ease in regards to writing effective and accurate essays.

description of :
I have been teaching fo seven years. I am dedicated, knowledgeable and passionate and at the same time, a teacher by choice! I believe that teaching is a profession where there is dignity, respect, and novelty! I prefer to share what I know with students in a way, that knowledge transition is smooth and flawless. A good teacher discovers the hidden talent in a child and polishes it until, the talent shows out in the crowd. I like to think that I am that teacher.

With this reading plan in place, the eighth grade students improved their overall reading score by an average of fifteen points. 92% of all eighth grade students met or exceeded the reading standard, which was a 4% increase from the previous year.
