Mr. J's 8th Grade ELA Class


I would like to welcome you to the start of a new school year! I am a native of Monroe, LA, and this is my third year teaching 8th Grade ELA at Lee Junior High. I obtained my Bachelor of Science in Secondary Education & Teaching with a concentration in English for grades 6th - 12th. Currently, I am also enrolled in school at the University of Louisiana - Monroe (ULM) working towards a Master of Public Administration with a concentration in Management.

During my tenure at ULM, I was afforded many opportunities to work with a plethora of educational initiatives, and this work helped to solidify my passion for providing every student with a quality education inside and outside of the classroom. If you would like information regarding any educational enrichment activities for the summer, please do not hesitate to contact me.

It is important that every student and parent are informed of my academic and behavioral expectations. I have always found parents to be very supportive of good classroom behavior so their child has a good environment for maximum learning. Please visit my syllabus page at your leisure to review my rules, guidelines, and expectations. Also, please do not hesitate to contact me if your child has a problem academically, socially, or emotionally at any point throughout the school year. My contact information can be found on my "Class Schedule & Contact Information" page.

I consider it a great privilege and responsibility to be a teacher at Lee Junior High.

Mr. J.
