Welcome to our new school website!
I hope that our new website will be a great place to share the exciting things we are doing in Language Arts.  As we start the new school year, we hope to become great readers and writers.  Your interest in what is happening in the classroom goes a long way in encouraging your son or daughter to always do their best.
Let the learning begin!
About Me
This is my 30th year teaching at Lavallette School!  When I first started, Mr. Bill Hopson told me, "This will be the best job, but the hardest job you will ever have in your teaching career."  And he was certainly correct!  The challenges that come with being a solo language arts teacher are many.  Teaching the same kids for 3 years in a row brings on the challenge of keeping things new and interesting as students move from 6th grade to 8th grade. However, I enjoy these challenges and do my best to keep up with the latest trends in Language Arts.  Every year bring new and exciting ways to incorporate technology into the Language Arts classroom.  It is a great time to be an educator!
