Ms. Carol Monahan

 Welcome to 6 ELA Blue!  My name is Mrs. Carol Monahan, and I have been teaching middle school ELA for almost 10 years.  Prior to teaching, I worked as a reporter and a freelance writer.  Therefore, I greatly enjoy teaching the multiple writing genres that we cover each year.  My goal is always to encourage students to find their voice through a variety of approaches.  I understand the struggles some students have with transferring ideas to paper.  Through modeling, opportunities for revisions, and targeting each student's specific needs at his or her level, I hope to see each student develop a greater enjoyment of the writing process.  Course expectations include grammar, spelling, vocabulary, and writing exercises. Tests count for 50 percent, projects count for 35 percent, and quizzes/homework each count for 10 percent of the total grade. Feel free to contact me via the school's email with any questions throughout the year. I utilize the school's Fusion page to update homework assignments, post test, quiz and due dates, as well as helpful links. I am looking forward to a wonderful year of learning with your child!
