It's so great to be back at Hulstrom again this year. I love the community we have developed - the students, the families, the staff. It's like being part of a big, happy family.
I've been teaching for 31 years, 16 at Hulstrom, and 26 years in gifted education. I am the NJHS Faculty Advisor as well as the Drama Director for the school. I work each day to challenge and nurture lifelong learners. We have a lot of fun while we learn. My class is more project-based and students have the freedom to create their own ways of demonstrating their learning. The focus is on preparing my students for high school and the world beyond. They will learn discussion skills, writing techniques and genres, research methods and new ways to present their research, as well as learn to appreciate different genres of literature.
I appreciate you trusting me with your student(s) as we begin the grand adventure that is 6th, 7/8 Advanced and 8th grade Language Arts!
