WELCOME to the 2017-2018 SCHOOL YEAR!
My name is Miss Young and I will be teaching eighth grade English Language Arts this year at OTMS. In my classroom you will experience love, respect, rigorous lessons, high expectations and of course FUN.
This year's theme at OTMS is "Expectations of Excellence." With this being said, I will be holding all students to very high expectations. In addition to daily classwork and scheduled assessments, you will complete homework on a WEEKLY basis.
I am determined to equip each student with the tools needed to have a successful eighth grade year while preparing them for high school. Parents I will need your help to make this possible. I will be in contact with you throughout the year. However, PLEASE feel free to contact me via Active Parent or by scheduling an appointment with the counselor.
Students, I look forward to all of the fun and learning that will take place this year!
