Ms. Geras, English Langauge Arts
Welcome parents! My name is Mrs. Geras, and I love to read and make connections to students through literature. ELA class is the foundation for literacy it is where, I believe, it all starts. This year, I look forward to collaborating with you to help your child grow as a reader, writer, listener, speaker, and thinker.
We will focus much of our instruction on the 8th grade common core standards for New York, however, we will look to make each day engaging and enjoyable for the students. I believe I am not only their ELA teacher but a champion for their well being and life beyond the school building. I look forward to engaging the students in rigorous academic activity and reminding them of the lifelong connection each lesson makes.
I believe we will have a wonderful year together. Our year will be filled with interesting and exciting connections. I look forward to collaborating with you, the parents, on a daily basis.
